The Comeback Kid: Stallion Super Ninety Nine rebounds from injuries, gets three quick winners

Racehorses came and went in all directions – leaving the barn to gallop, to breeze, to run around in paddocks, to race even. But the flashy chestnut with the wide blaze just hung around. Some days, he got to stand in the cold tub. Other days, he got to stand in the hyperbaric chamber. Every once in a while, somebody came by to check on his left hind leg.

All along he never caused a problem. Not bad for an 8-year-old stallion who was supposed to be back on the farm breeding mares. 

Country Life Farm’s Super Ninety Nine spent four months at Fair Hill Equine Therapy Center recovering from an infection in his left hind suspensory that cost him basically the entire 2018 breeding season.

IRISH WAR CRY LEADS TOP MIDLANTIC-BRED POLL ON BELMONT EVE
