Veterinary Update - Rostropovich

Racing Victoria (RV) advises that an assessment of Rostropovich at the University of Melbourne Equine Centre has determined that the horse has sustained a stress fracture in its pelvis.

Rostropovich was inspected by RV veterinarians on course after finishing the Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington Racecourse today and was found to be lame.

After receiving initial veterinary care, the horse was transported to the University of Melbourne Equine Centre for further assessment.

The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained gelding is in a stable condition, comfortable and receiving the best veterinary care.

Rostropovich will be confined to box rest for the near future and will be closely monitored over the coming days by veterinary staff.
