Monarchos  , the 2001 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner, returned home Saturday, Aug. 11, to Nuckols Farm near Midway, Ky. He had undergone colic surgery at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute near Lexington the evening of July 31.

Charles Nuckols III said the 14-year old stallion is “on a strict diet and we are carefully measuring his water intake. We built a pen around the back door of his stall and mowed the grass very low. This way he can enjoy the outdoors but not overdo it.”

Monarchos (Maria's MonRegal Band, by Dixieland Band) has sired 15 stakes winners, including champion Informed Decision.
