Deep Cover Update

Deep Cover’s surgery, to be performed by Dr. Wes Sutter at the Kentucky Equine Hospital in Louisville, is scheduled for Friday. As previously reported, one screw will be inserted during the surgery as a preventative measure to ensure optimal healing of the beginnings of a fissure fracture in the gelding’s right hind condylar bone. A nuclear scintigraphy and further x-rays on Deep Cover taken by Dr. Sutter revealed no fractures.

Following Friday’s surgery, the recovery period for Deep Cover will involve 30 days of stall rest and hand-walking, followed by another 30 days of being on turnout, and then an additional 30 days of jogging. Pending all has gone well with Deep Cover’s healing process at that point, he will be ready to resume training.

Mo Mischief Update

The team at Payton Training Center in Ocala, Fl. reports that all is well with Mo Mischief, who is galloping daily. The 3-year-old son of Into Mischief is said to be moving beautifully in his gallops.

As reported in an earlier update, Mo Mischief will gallop for a 30-day period — he began galloping last Friday — before moving on to some short breezes. Following that schedule, and pending all is well with the colt, he will move onto trainer Todd Pletcher’s barn later in the spring.
