From the DRF:

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said that Takaful, the winner of last year’s Grade 1 Vosburgh, was euthanized earlier this year due to an injury suffered following routine surgery. McLaughlin said Takaful underwent surgery on a hock, and when he tried to get up in recovery, he took a bad step and suffered a fracture that proved fatal.

I wonder if a recovery pool could have prevented that fracture? I know that not many vet hospitals have those pools but, when I read of an incident like this, I wish more did. :(

As do I. But it's my understanding that the recovery pool isn't used that often even for surgeries at e.g. New Bolton. Too much of an additional expense maybe?

I don't think a recovery pool would've prevented it in this case, it sounds like he was just trying to get up - the recovery pool mostly just prevents the horse from thrashing and hurting themselves if they panic. Result probably would've been the same once he got out of the pool and tried getting up, if he were to take a bad step.

Very sad though, RIP Takaful :(
