Additional Details:

Ozaki came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He was a good racer and also raced at Dubuque and was a finalist in the 2016 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Race. He only raced 36 races though. He broke his leg at the end of December. His racing owner had an expensive surgery done to fix the leg then. He has been rehabbing at the track since then. He still had swelling and infection in the leg when he arrived, so we had a biopsy done on his leg to find out what was going on. It turns out he had an infection that was resistant to common antibiotics, and we had to change his treatment to daily antibiotic injections. He has been at the vet since he came in. We hoping that this new treatment would get the swelling and oozing to stop and but it did not. After 2 weeks of treatment the leg continued to get worse and the infected leg was beginning to poison his body and had to be removed. Ozaki came through the amputation great and is getting around fine on 3 legs. His trainer told us about his great personality and said he was one of his favorites in the kennel. The staff that has been working with him at our vet clinic agrees and one of them has fallen in love with him and wants to adopt him when he is released from vet care. Ozaki is a big guy that raced at 79lbs and probably weighs more than that now. His sire is the very famous SH Avatar and his dam is Money Maid. Ozaki turns 3 on June 11th. Ozaki seems like a sensitive guy that was a little stressed about the haul and everything new. We think he may be on the dramatic side. When we were loading him in the van he had to be lifted in, then wouldn't put his legs down. We had to slide him in on his side on the dog beds. That one step up just made him literally freeze. He was OK a second later, up on his feet sniffing around. Sweet, goofy, guy!
