All The Time recovering from colic surgery
« Return to News
Hambletonian Oaks winner All The Time appears to be doing well as she recovers from emergency colic surgery, trainer Jimmy Takter said Monday morning.
All The Time displayed symptoms of colic early Sunday, roughly 14 hours after winning the Hambletonian Oaks at the Meadowlands Racetrack, and was taken to Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center, where intestinal surgery was performed. Takter said he was notified this morning that the 3-year-old filly trotter was recovering nicely and normal intestinal function appeared to have resumed.
"We were very fortunate," Takter said. "They did a fantastic job at Mid-Atlantic to do what they did. She is going to be there for four or five days so they can monitor her. But as of this morning everything was working well, so that is good."
"The chances that she is going to race again are 50-50 at best," Takter said. "Maybe I can have her ready for the Breeders Crown (in late October) but she will let me know. I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize her health. She is such a unique horse and her family is great. We are grateful for what she has done." (HRC)
