  • Camelot is reportedly “doing great” after undergoing exploratory colic surgery last night (Thursday 11 October).

    The Aidan O’Brien-trained three-year-old has won the 2000 Guineas and Derby this season.

    And last month he bid to become the first racehorse in 42 years to win the Triple Crown, but was beaten in the St Leger.

    On Sunday (7 October) he finished seventh in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

    Coolmore Stud tweeted: “Camelot’s colic surgery went well and he is doing great. The veterinary team are delighted with his progress to date.

    The following day the Stud added: “Camelot has arrived at Coolmore from Fethard Veterinary Hospital and is in good shape. He is expected to return to training for 2013.”
