1896: Early x-ray usage in the racehorse

“The X ray has made its appearance on the turf. The pacer, Rock Wilkes, 2:19 ¾, fell and broke his hip while taking a work out at the Youngstown track recently. The horse was insured and the company proposed to try the X ray in order to prove just what injury the horse sustained before settling with the owner.” (The Nashville American, 08/31/1896)
