Barbaro comfortable after latest treatment

July 12, 2006

Dr. Dean Richardson, Chief of Surgery, reported last night that Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro was resting comfortably after receiving his sixth cast yesterday since his accident at the Preakness on May 20.

"Barbaro is eating well and resting in his stall," said Dr. Richardson, who also treated the colt for an abscess in his left hind foot.

"He's tolerating the new cast well," said Dr. Richardson.

"We have changed his left hind foot bandage and that looks improved. His vital signs remain stable and his attitude and appetite remain excellent."

Barbaro continues to be monitored closely in the Intensive Care Unit of the George D. Widener Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center.
