Valadorna Update

 

Following her final prep breeze for the G1 Ashland yesterday morning Valadorna was found to have suffered an incomplete condylar fracture in her left hind. She underwent successful surgical repair at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington KY later that morning and will return to Stonestreet Farm tomorrow.

Though she will require considerable recuperation, in most cases this injury does not prove career ending; her progress will govern all future decisions. We thank trainer Mark Casse, surgeon Dr. Al Ruggles and both of their teams for the excellent care they have provided our girl.
