Here Comes Frazier Has Successful Surgery

Surgery Oct. 13 on promising 2-year-old colt Here Comes Frazier to correct a multi-piece fracture of the right hock (tibia bone) was successful and the prognosis is good the son of Badge of Silver could eventually return to competition, according to trainer Ken McPeek’s office.

Here Comes Frazier was injured when he swerved into the rail just before the eighth pole while on the lead over 11 rivals in the Oct. 9 Bourbon Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Keeneland. The accident sent jockey Julien Leparoux over the rail and into the infield. The rider sustained minor injuries in his right hand.
