The Pride of Maryland and Maryland Horse of the Year Ben's Cat underwent colic surgery on July 6th, 2017 to repair an epiploic foramen entrapment.
The surgery was performed by Dr. True Baker at the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, KY. He is currently recovering in the McGee Medicine Center under the care of Dr. Rana Bozorgmanesh.
Quoted from Christina Welker of Spring Ridge Farm in Versailles, KY, “In the short time Ben's Cat has been in KY he has endeared himself to all that have been around him and cared for him. His intelligence and demeanor are a true testament of his class as a racehorse. I can assure all his loyal fans that every effort will be made to see him through to a full recovery and we are fortunate to have such skilled and high levels of equine medical care in our area.”
