A Little Bit of ‘R & R’: Orb to Enjoy Some Down Time at Fair Hill
Kentucky Derby winner Orb, who most recently finished third in the June 8 Belmont Stakes, arrived at Fair Hill Equine Therapy Center on Sunday afternoon for a bit of rest and relaxation.
Joe Clancy, at the This is Horse Racing website reported that the Malibu Moon colt was enjoying spending his days either outside grazing or spending time in a round pen. Orb also has sessions in a hyperbaric chamber.
Trainer Shug McGaughey has sent horses to the Equine Therapy Center at Fair Hill in the past. The center, which is managed and co-owned by Bruce Jackson was home to Paynter during much of his recovery last year.
McGaughey wanted to give Orb a break from the racetrack. “I sent him down there for a couple weeks, just to get him out of the racetrack environment,” said McGaughey.
“We'll see if he can put some weight back on and just get his mind off running for a little while.”
