St Nicholas Abbey: Has put on a little weight
St Nicholas Abbey continues to please after fracturing a leg and recovering from colic.
The prognosis had looked bleak for the six-times Group One winner when his life was threatened by colic just hours after he underwent surgery for an injury he sustained on the gallops.
A month on, though, the six-year-old is reportedly making good progress, according to his owners, Coolmore.
They tweeted: "It's a month today since St Nicholas Abbey underwent major surgery to repair a life-threatening fracture of his right forelimb.
"The veterinary interns who are with him 24/7 described him today as the 'best he has been' and the veterinary surgeons are equally happy.
"Recent radiographs look good, his temperature remains normal and his white blood cell count is good.
"St Nicholas Abbey is eating well and has put on a little weight. He's comfortable and is lying down regularly to give himself every chance.
"As his recovery continues we hope we can give a similarly positive update in another month."
