`Quiet' might be released from hospital


March 08, 2007|By SANDRA MCKEE

Real Quiet, the 1998 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner who has been recovering from lameness at the New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa., might be released from the hospital as early as tomorrow.

"I went to New Bolton, spoke to Dean [Dr. Dean Richardson] and saw Real Quiet," said Mike Jester, syndicate manager for the horse. "He's doing great. He's really back to his old self right now."

Jester said a bone scan on Real Quiet's back legs Monday turned out negative.

"Dean wants to give him a little more treatment on the right hind [foot], to totally clean up [the draining abcess]," Jester said. "Then, he'll probably come home Friday."

Laurel Park -- Yesterday's snow forced the Maryland Jockey Club to cancel live racing at Laurel Park for the third time this year.
