Ive Struck a Nerve recovering from surgery

Trainer Keith Desormeaux reported Tuesday that he was informed that the ankle surgery performed the previous day on Ive Struck a Nerve “went about as well as can be expected. The colt came out of it just great and is standing and doing just fine.”

Ive Struck a Nerve suffered a fractured sesamoid in his left front ankle during a Saturday workout at Fair Grounds. Surgery that involved the insertion of one screw was performed in Lexington, Ky., at the Rood and Riddle equine hospital by Dr. Larry Bramlage, the noted equine surgeon.

Desormeaux said he expected that Ive Struck a Nerve would remain at Rood and Riddle for an additional “two or three days,” then would be sent to a farm for several months of rest before being reevaluated.
