Admirals War Chest Seeks Maryland Repeat

By Frank Angst

Last fall, Admirals War Chest lost five consecutive races before turning an out-of-town Maryland Million prep victory into his front-running score in the day's richest race.

Looking for a repeat performance, the Sinatra Thoroughbred Racing & Breeding homebred is following a similar pattern heading into this year's $150,000 Maryland Million Classic, which highlights the 31st annual Jim McKay Maryland Million Day program Oct. 22 at Laurel Park.


Veterinary researchers at the University of California, Davis, are teaming up with their colleagues in human medicine to investigate a troubling disorder in newborn horses and are exploring possible connections to childhood autism. The common link, the researchers suggest, may be abnormal levels of naturally occurring neurosteroids.

The horse disorder, known as neonatal maladjustment syndrome, has puzzled horse owners and veterinarians for a century. Foals affected by the disorder seem detached, fail to recognize their mothers and have no interest in nursing.

“The behavioral abnormalities in these foals seem to resemble some of the symptoms in children with autism,” said John Madigan, a UC Davis veterinary professor and expert in equine neonatal health.
