Part 1 of this article, published in the May issue of In Practice (volume 32, pp 174–183), discussed the interpretation of images submitted for yearlings undergoing radiographic screening at thoroughbred horse sales, and described the changes commonly encountered in the fetlock of horses and their possible impact on future trainability and racing performance. This article discusses the significance of lesions present in the carpus, tarsus and stifle, sites in which radiographic changes can be among the most important in terms of prognostic impact on future racing performance.
