BRIGHT IS NOW HAPPILY HANGING OUT AT POPLAR MEADOWS IN SANGER. WE VISITED HIM ON JANUARY 2, 2011 ON A DAY THAT WAS RAINING LIKE CRAZY.
Bright looks good. I had Dr. Ford take a look at his tendon and he said that you can't tell that he ever had an injury. Love that platlet replacement therapy. So - he is back on the trail to get back to the races by the end of June. We have to start him slow by hand walking. But he is in really good hands with Carol Lingenfeldter - who is a pro at getting horses back in shape for the races.
He will start on the Aqua tred in a few weeks. Probably in April he will go back to Howard Zucker at Santa Anita. Bigger, better and stronger than before. He's really a big strapping, good looking colt now. And he's still got a very nice personality. Easy going and loves his carrots.
He's my Gio Ponti. I can just feel it. He is going to love the turf.
