Centralinteligence Recovering Well From Surgery
Centralinteligence, who was pulled up during this year’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, is doing well following surgery for a condylar fracture. Veterinarians inserted two stabilizing pins into his front leg last weekend.
According to trainer Ron Ellis via a Daily Racing Form report, the horse has a 70 to 80 percent chance of returning to the races after his recovery.
The 5-year-old son of Smarty Jones earned his first graded stakes win in June with the Grade 1 Triple Bend Handicap, after finishing second in the Grade 3 Los Angeles Handicap two years in a row.
