All Squared Away
Trainer Peter Miller termed surgery on 4-year-old gelding All Squared Away for a condylar fracture of his right front ankle July 15 "very successful." He said the prognosis for a full recovery is "very good."
All Squared Away was being pointed to the Eddie Read Stakes (gr. IT) at Del Mar. He sustained the injury in his final workout for the race July 14 at Betfair Hollywood Park.
"Four months layoff, but we absolutely expect to have him back racing again and hopefully at the same level," Miller said July 19.
With four consecutive graded stakes placings heading into the Read, All Squared Away was considered a major contender before the injury, which occurred as he worked five furlongs in 1:00 2/5 over Hollywood's Cushion Track.
Miller's prognosis was welcomed news to Point Loma natives Bob Rodriques and Joe Correia, who head Wire 2 Wire Stable. They own a quarter of the son of Bellamy Road in partnership with with Brous Stable and Wachtel Stable.
"I'm sure there will be challenges ahead, but we're happy to get the good news that he's all right," Rodriques said.
All Squared Away has career earnings of $374,809 with a record of 4-5-3 in in 22 starts. His biggest win came in the Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. III) at Keeneland in April of last year. Out of the Posse mare Squared, he was bred in Kentucky by Gracefield Breeders.
