Fleet Indian, who was injured during the stretch run of the Emirates Airline Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I), underwent precautionary radiographs and an ultrasound Nov. 13 at Taylor Made Farm.

"The ultrasound just really showed what we knew already," said Paul Saylor who owns the multiple grade I winning mare. "She's got a tear in both sides of her suspensory in her left leg. And beyond that not being good, she is standing up on it pretty good. They are thinking of maybe taking the splint off and she is eating and appears comfortable."

Saylor said radiographs of the left ankle and knee were also taken as a precautionary measure.

Fleet Indian is expected to remain under stall rest at the Taylor family's farm near Nicholasville, Ky.

The 5-year-old mare Fleet Indian brought an eight-race winning streak into the Distaff, including victories in the Personal Ensign (gr. I) and Beldame (gr. I) in her last two starts. She won 13 of 19 and earned $1,704,513.
