Spruce Meadows is pleased to report that after being examined by the Veterinary team, HH Dark de la Hart has be diagnosed with a pulled tendon. USA’s Quentin Judge and HH Dark de la Hart were competing in today’s Cenovus Energy Classic Derby when Judge pulled up the well-known stallion following the devil’s dyke. Judge immediately dismounted and the Double H Team and medical on-call officers rushed to the side of the grey stallion, who won the Nexen Cup Derby last year at Spruce Meadows.
HH Dark de la Hart is expected to make a full recovery, and like many athletes, will just need some rest, ice and time to recuperate.
We wish HH Dark de la Hart a healthy and complete recovery. Our thoughts are with Quentin Judge and the whole team at Double H Farms.
