Bella Chica Update

Bella Chica was looked at and ultrasounded by a vet last week. The results came back GREAT. I thought about sending her back to track but I’m going to give her three more weeks out in a round pen and having her jog with a rider in the arena.  I might be being a little cautious but we’ve come this far and I’d like to give her every chance to succeed. Getting close!

Another Great Update

Just got off the phone with our vet up in Santa Ynez and news keeps getting better with Bella Chica. She should be off antibiotics in less than a month. I didn’t ask the question of when can she go back to work but I believe she’ll be in round pen before we know it. I usually don’t spend more than two weeks there as I prefer them jogging at the track. She’s been on the vibrating plate two times at day for a while so her muscles shouldn’t have atrophied. I’ve learned not to get to up or down in this business but it will take something for me not to smile all afternoon.

Bella Chica Update

Bella Chica is slowly progressing. She is starting to feel good and has brought her weight back up to her racing weight of approx. 970lbs. She will undergo an ultrasound this week to give us a better idea of the status of her right lung. Majority owner Ty Green will be going to see her Friday and will have more information soon!
