Trackside vet at @parxracing says Irap will ship to New Bolton in the morning. Has a lot of swelling around the injury (left front sesamoid)

IRAP 3 hour surgery successful, to stay at New Bolton for 2-4 weeks.

https://www.paulickreport.com/horse-car ... sesamoids/

According to drf.com, the surgery involved fusing the ankle joint and applying metal plates to the area to improve stability. Irap was woken up from the anesthesia in a pool of water, and “walked comfortably back to his stall.”

Plans call for Irap to remain at New Bolton for two to four weeks while the hospital team watches for signs of infection or laminitis, and when he is able, the colt will be flown back to California to continue his recovery.

She is ok. Her stifle locked up when she was bumped very hard at the start.

High Noon Cocktail just went down in a race shown on TVG. Since I was out of the room, I missed which track it was. :(

Glad to hear they used the recovery pool. It may not always be necessary, but it does seem to remove some of the risks of waking up from anesthesia.
