Totilas Has a Periostitis

After an examination in the Belgian clinic to which Totilas has been brought after his withdrawal from Aachen, Sjef Janssen now told on Dutch television that the black stallion has a periostitis (inflammation of the outer layer of the bone). Totilas definitely needed four to five months break, but Matthias Rath’s coach could not rule out that this could be the end  of the 15-year old horse’s career.
