Afleet Alex recovering from surgery


Champion Afleet Alex, winner of the 2005 Preakness and Belmont Stakes, is recovering from hernia surgery at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Ky. The 4-year-old horse, who stands at Gainesway Farm in Lexington, is expected back at the farm later this week and is having what the farm termed "an uneventful recovery" from the Sept. 26 surgery.
