Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Raven's Pass underwent colic surgery April 20. The 5-year-old stallion, who stands at Sheikh Mohammed’s Kildangan Stud in Ireland, will be rested from covering duties for the next six weeks.
"Unfortunately, Raven's Pass underwent colic surgery yesterday,” Jimmy Hyland, Kildangan's stud director said. “The operation went well, and we are relieved he is showing positive signs of recovery.”
Raven’s Pass, whose first foals are arriving this year, set a track record in the 2008 Breeders’ Cup Classic. He was a champion and group I winner in England. He is by Elusive Quality out of the Lord At War mare Ascutney. His fee is 30,000 euros.
