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
