Lady Eli, the unbeaten filly that was sidelined with laminitis in both front feet earlier this year, is recovering very well at Dell Ridge Farm in Kentucky, where she is enjoying paddock rest in advance of a possible comeback in 2016.

The Belmont Park Stable Notes for September 27th included a positive update from trainer Chad Brown: “She’s doing terrific right now,” Brown said. “She’s over at Dell Ridge Farm and she’s been turned out a couple times a day and she’s really enjoying that. All the members of her team are real happy with her progress. The plan is to give her a couple months in Kentucky and I plan on taking her back into my care maybe the end of November, beginning of December, down to Palm Meadows and start her back in light training.”
