Veterinarians at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center have examined Yankee Glide and determined the 19-year-old stallion does not need surgery and may be back breeding as early as next week. Yankee Glide was taken to New Bolton on Monday morning after developing colic.
"I spoke with New Bolton and they said no surgery is necessary, that he just had a case of enteritis, or inflammation of the bowel," said Bob Brady of Kentuckiana Farms, which manages the stallion. "They're going to start introducing food and if he handles that well, he'll be back to the farm later this week and he should be able to breed early next week."
The New Bolton Center is about 1 hour and 15 minute driving distance from Walnridge Farm of Pennsylvania, where Yankee Glide stands at stud. "We're spoiled with all of the great vet clinics so close to the farms in Kentucky," noted Brady.--harnessracing.com
