St Nicholas Abbey Surgery Update
Following surgery on a fractured pastern incurred at training on Tuesday, thoroughbreddailynews.com reports that Coolmore Stud has released a statement regarding 6-time Gr1 winner St Nicholas Abbey: "After a lengthy surgery to fuse the pastern St Nicholas Abbey is recuperating in intensive care at John Halley's Fethard Equine Hospital. Surgery was carried out at Fethard Equine Hospital in consultation with Dr Dean Richardson, Head of Surgery at New Bolton Centre Pennsylvania, along with Ger Kelly and Tom O'Brien. St Nicholas Abbey will remain in intensive care for some time and has many bridges to cross before he is considered out of danger. This morning he is well and comfortable and back enjoying his hay! We are lucky he is so fit and has a marvellous attitude and temperament which will be vital for his long recovery."
