Endurance racer's latest venture comes up short

With 40 miles of the 100-mile race behind them, Richard Frazier anticipated riding his white Arabian stallion Hindi Shahab across the finish line. And maybe, as in several past horse-and-rider events, they?d be leaders of the pack.
But that hope wasn?t to be.
After high-altitude training in Otero County?s Sacramento Mountains to prepare for the Tevis Cup in Lake Tahoe, Calif., Frazier and his white Arabian stallion withdrew after an injury.
?We had finished the most difficult section of the race, which was the climb of 8,750 feet over Emigrant Pass, and had crossed the 20 miles of humid bogs through a National Wilderness area,? Frazier said. ?I thought we were in great shape as the metabolic part of the vet(erinarian) check showed the stallion?s vital signs perfect with no stress.?
