Colic Surgery for Paddy O'Prado

Grade I winner and millionaire Paddy O'Prado is doing well after having colic surgery late May 11 at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute near Lexington.

Surgeon Dr. Michael Spirito discovered the 5-year-old son of El Prado—Fun House, by Prized, had a twist in his large colon. No re-sectioning of the digestive tract was necessary, and Paddy O’Prado is expected to return to B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm, which is near Hagyard, in a couple days.

"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.
