"We feel fortunate to have discovered the issue quickly, and to have convenient access to the great veterinarian staff at Hagyard," said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift general manager.

Love to the beautiful grey and his veterinary team. 5 would be way, way too young to lose him.
Good to hear all is well. He could be a great, versatile sire. Gotta keep that El Prado bloodline going.
So sad to hear this, but sounds like things are going well, so glad.
