Barbaro at New Bolton Center

On July 8, Dr. Dean W. Richardson, chief of surgery and the Charles W. Raker Professor of Equine Surgery at Penn Vet’s Widener Hospital, replaced the plate and many of the screws that had been inserted into Barbaro’s injured hind leg on May 21. “Barbaro had developed some discomfort and a consistently elevated temperature so we believed it was in his best interest to remove the hardware and thoroughly clean the site of the infection,” said Dr. Richardson. “We also applied a longer cast on that leg for additional support.”

Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro has been in intensive care at the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals at Penn’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, since undergoing his initial surgery there after sustaining the life-threatening injury at the Preakness in May.
