Just Call Kenny, the stylish winner of the Spectacular Bid Stakes last Saturday at Gulfstream Park, is recovering from surgery to repair a condylar fracture in his right foreleg. The handsome colt made an eye-catching rally to upset that $100,000 event, but was noticeably sore while cooling out afterwards. X-rays revealed the fracture, and trainer Pat McBurney shipped the 3-year-old to Ocala, Florida, for the operation. “The surgery went well,” McBurney confirmed. “Dr. [John] Madison did it up at Ocala Equine. He said that when he was looking into the scope the fracture line was so fine that he could hardly see it, so it should come back together nicely. He put two screws in there.” Just Call Kenny is expected to make a full recovery and has rejoined the McBurney string at Gulfstream.

“He’ll need 30 days’ stall rest and then 30 days of hand-walking,” McBurney explained. “Dr. Madison thought it would be completely healed by then and that he could get back to his racehorse jogging, so an x-ray after 60 days should tell that story.”Just Call Kenny, campaigned by a partnership that includes Phantom House Farm and ABL Stable, made a victorious career bow at Monmouth Park last August. He finished second in an allowance at Laurel Park on Oct. 2. The Spectacular Bid took his career earnings to $92,820. He is a son of the A.P. Indy stallion Jump Start, and McBurney is cautiously optimistic that Just Call Kenny will be able to fulfill to his early potential.“We had been intending to stretch him out and we’re hoping that can come to fruition at the end of all of this,” the horseman remarked. “We’re hoping he can be as good as he was—that would be nice.”
