The late Edward P. Evans’s Jim Dandy winner A Little Warm has been
withdrawn from Keeneland’s upcoming January all-ages sale as he
continues his recovery from ankle surgery.
The 4-year-old Stormin Fever colt was cataloged as Hip No. 1469 in the Lane’s End consignment.
Chris Baker, the racing and farm manager at Evans’s Spring Hill Farm
in Virginia, said veterinarians had advised the farm that the 4-year-old
Stormin Fever colt “needs a little more time.” A Little Warm underwent
surgery in late October to insert two screws in his left front fetlock
and three screws in his right front fetlock. He sustained condylar
fractures to both forelegs during a routine gallop at Delaware Park.
