Richardson made his comments before being presented by the Turf Publicists of America with the group's Big Sport of Turfdom Award, which recognizes individuals for their assistance with the media.

Wait a minute. I have to believe this is a joke. Turf Publicists of America? Big Sport of Turfdom Award? Is "turfdom" a real word?

Horse lovers (and apologists) certainly are a different breed. (Pun intended)

The Eastern Tanners Glue Company was established in Gowanda in 1904 by German immigrant Richard Wilhelm and two other investors. Wilhelm eventually bought the company entirely and, over the next 30 years, purchased nearly every major glue manufacturer in the U.S. and Canada. He changed the name of the company in 1930 to the "Peter Cooper Glue Corporations," as the result of the purchase of the Peter Cooper Glue company. Wilhelm became known nationally as "The Glue King." His product, dried flaked glue, was used in countless ways by other manufacturers to make matches, plywood, book binding, electrolytic metal refining, shoe soles, household cleaners, etc.

Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro was recovering well on Thursday after having his left hind leg cast replaced on Wednesday under general anesthesia, the New Bolton Center's equine hospital reported.

Chief surgeon Dr. Dean Richardson said he also drained an abscess the colt had developed near the heel of his right hind leg. Barbaro also has received a custom-made plastic and steel leg brace to provide additional support to his right leg, which has recovered well from serious fractures incurred in the May 20 Preakness. The orthotic brace also will allow Barbaro's veterinary team to regularly treat the abscess.

Barbaro also had new shoes placed on his front feet "for additional support," a New Bolton release said.

The release called the Wednesday cast replacement "a planned procedure."

The left hind foot developed severe laminitis, a painful and potentially fatal disease, in July, leading Richardson to remove about 80 percent of the hoof. About two weeks ago, Barbaro suffered a serious setback when the regrowing left hoof became painful and part of the new hoof wall separated from the foot, prompting Richardson to trim the hoof two more times. Laminitis is a common complication when horses shift too much weight from an injured leg onto a healthy one.

"We were very pleased with the progress of his left hind foot since the cast was applied," Richardson said.

Richardson said Barbaro's attitude and appetite were "excellent" on Thursday. He said that he will probably replace the cast two or three times at approximately two-week intervals.
