Champion Vindication continues recovery from suspensory injury.
Bob Baffert reports that his undefeated 2-year-old champion, Vindication, is doing well at Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center in Los Olivos, where the $2.15 million son of Seattle Slew is recovering from a suspensory injury.
"He's undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy," Baffert said. "They say he's doing pretty good."
A medical center spokesperson said Thursday that the procedure promotes healing and doctors are optimistic that Vindication will eventually return to the races. The Padua Stables' colt has been at the facility since Feb. 10.
