Knee Fracture Knocks Out Spring Hill Farm

Spring Hill Farm, who finished fourth in the March 10 Tampa Bay Derby (gr. II), suffered a right knee fracture and will have surgery at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington March 14.


George Bolton, who co-owns the 3-year-old son of Smart Strike with Stonestreet Stables, confirmed the news March 13. He said the colt will have a screw inserted in his knee by Dr. Larry Bramlage. It will be unknown until after surgery if Spring Hill Farm will return to racing, but Bolton is hopeful.


“It sounds fixable from what they are saying so far, but we will wait until after surgery,” Bolton said. “Hopefully he can return to his old self at some point, maybe next fall.”

This is abit upsetting, more of this. It's like some strange spring "culling". Among those left standing..... And then, how to pick the top 40, top 20, top 6 for the Derby?
Enough with the injuries already, hope all will be ok with SHF.
