Barbaro is stable and acceptably comfortable

January 11, 2007

KENNETT SQUARE, PA-- Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro's management has
been changed to include sling support for several hours during the
day, according to Dr. Dean W. Richardson, Chief of Surgery.  "He is
getting up and down on his own and continues to eat and have stable
vital signs.  Radiographs (X-rays) taken yesterday revealed no
additional complications in either hind leg.  We are considering
several additional therapeutic options at this time.  He is stable
and acceptably comfortable."

Barbaro remains in the Intensive Care Unit at Penn's George D.
Widener Hospital for Large Animals.

Updates will be provided when new information is available.

Barbaro comfortable overnight

January 12, 2007
KENNETT SQUARE, PA — According to his medical team, Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro rested comfortably overnight.   “We do not believe that this setback puts him all the way back to where he was in July,” said Dr. Dean W. Richardson, Chief of Surgery. “He has much more healthy tissue on the bottom of the left foot than he had at that time. He spends part of each day in his sling, and he is eating well and acting bright.”

The colt’s right hind leg, injured at the Preakness on May 20, 2006, is also being closely monitored. “We have a solid column of bone to work with in the right hind limb,” said Dr. Richardson. “There are no signs of infection in either limb at this time. It is very disappointing to have him go through this setback, but we will continue to try to keep him comfortable and assist his healing with reasonable and humane measures.”

Barbaro remains in the Intensive Care Unit of Penn’s George D. Widener Hospital at New Bolton Center.

The next update will be posted on Tuesday, January 16, unless there is a significant change in Barbaro’s condition.
