Kaitlin Spurlock has just updated her Facebook page with information on Expedience, who suffered a foot fracture yesterday at the Head of the Lake on cross country at Rolex. The mare successfully underwent surgery yesterday at Rood and Riddle to have four screws placed in her right front pastern. Kaitlin thanked Spedy’s vet team, support staff at the Kentucky Horse Park, the horse’s former owner Melissa Hunsberger and her parents for their support. “I am so lucky to have this horse in my life and all these wonderful people to help us,” Kaitlin said. Spedy’s first Rolex was meant to be her last hurrah before retirement, and we’re relieved the injury wasn’t more serious so she can live out the rest of her days fat and happy in a field. Get well soon, Spedy!
