Veterinarians at the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals continue to be pleased with Barbaro’s condition, which improves daily. The Kentucky Derby winner is recovering from a shattered hind leg sustained at the Preakness on May 20. “He spent a restful weekend and is doing well,” said Chief of Surgery Dean W. Richardson, DVM, Dipl. ACVS.


Barbaro remains in intensive care at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s New Bolton Center.


Concern and support for Barbaro continues to pour in, often from unexpected sources. After seeing a photo of Barbaro lowered in our special equine recovery pool last month, the Notre Dame Masters Swim team-in support of a fellow athlete-made a donation for maintenance of the pool.
