Sky Mesa back at Three Chimneys after surgery

SKY MESA, the leading second-crop sire in the US last year, has returned to Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky as he continues to recover from two operations related to a bout of colic.

The nine-year-old son of Pulpit underwent surgery for acute abdominal pain on February 15, and was operated on again four days later after suffering an impaction.

Three Chimneys spokesperson Jen Roytz told The Blood-Horse: "Since the second surgery, Sky Mesa has continued to progress in a positive direction.

"He is showing all the signs of a healthy recovery and is pretty much back to acting like the old Sky mesa we all know."

Sky Mesa is on schedule to return to the breeding shed on or around March 20. Three Chimneys claims that his absence during the first part of the breeding season will have little effect on his book size this year, as the number of mares bred to Three Chimneys stallions is limited.
