Brazilian stallion Jules, whose son, Peace Rules, figures to be one of the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) favorities, is recovering from a bout of laminitis.
"He's doing fine," said Jose DeCamargo of Santa Escolastica.
DeCamargo, who is based in Versailles, Ky., said that efforts to return Jules to the U.S. have been put on hold because of the laminitis. Jules stood at Bridlewood Farm near Ocala, Fla., before he was sold to Brazilian interests to stand at Haras Santa Maria de Araras.
A graded stakes winner in the U.S., 9-year-old Jules (Forty Niner--Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) has sired 10 stakes winners, five of which are added-money winners this year. Peace Rules won the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) in his final Derby prep. Jules' second dam is a half-sister to Northern Dancer.
