He started his PRP therapy on friday .

Marketfrontrunning is due to be scanned by vet today hoping for good news that tendon has healed

Sky Afleet arrived at Mill Creek Farm near Saratoga. The WPT team will be out to the farm to visit him next week.

Dr. Leroux recommends PRP therapy during Sky Afleet’s time on the farm to accelerate the healing of the small tendon tear.

 Essentially blood is taken from the horse and processed so the fraction of the blood with the highest concentration of platelets is obtained. The plasma is the then injected into the injury site. Growth factors in the plasma help the body accelerate tissue regeneration and healing. This is the same treatment we used on El Gato Malo’s tendon last year. He has since come back to race soundly

 Originally communicated Sky Afleet would head to Kirkwood Stables for his sixty days of training. However, we’ve decided to send him to Mill Creek Farm near Saratoga. We’ve sent a few rehabbing horses to Mill Creek over the past year or so, and the care is excellent. This enables us to see Sky Afleet and have Partners visit during the race meet

Honeysuckle Vine overcame rearing up at the gate and 2 jockey objections to win by a neck in her maiden yesterday at Finger Lakes paying a very handsome $19.40

On July 6th we reported, on the web, that Sky Afleet had "some inflammation in his left front tendon." Also, will be "scanned over the next few days"...

The results of the scan follow. Looks like Tom caught it before it turned into a bigger issue;

"Dr. Leroux scanned Sky Afleet and found a very small tear in his left front tendon. The vets recommended about sixty days out of training. He’ll ship to Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables in Camden, South Carolina before going back into training in September. Disappointing that he won’t run at Saratoga this summer, but fortunately Tom caught this before a more serious injury occurred."

Sky Afleet worked a half mile in company in 50:59 (19 of 22) on Monday at Belmont. “He’s gotten better and better with each work,” said Tom. “He was under a little bit encouragement from the rider down the lane, but I thought he finished up well.”

After the work Tom noticed some inflammation in Sky Afleet’s left front tendon. Soft tissue expert Dr. Annette Leroux will evaluate this horse and scan the tendon within the next few days. More to come.

Honeysuckle Vine is entered on Tuesday 2nd at Finger Lakes MSW going 5 1/2   hopefully this time she will get in and out of the gate with no issues
