Wednesday, 5th July 2006

Racing fans in America received further good news earlier this week when it was announced that Gr1 Kentucky Derby hero Barbaro (Dynaformer-La Ville Rouge, by Carson City) had had the cast changed on his injured hind leg. From the US, bloodhorse.com reports that in addition to the cast being replaced from the life-threatening injury he incurred in the Gr1 Preakness Stakes, 2 bent screws were replaced, and 3 news ones added "across the pastern joint." While not out of danger yet, "Barbaro remains in intensive care at the hospital at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine."
