DEL MAR, Calif. – Lava Man, the popular Hall of Famer who was a multiple stakes winner in the late 2000s, is scheduled to leave a local equine clinic in the coming days after undergoing emergency surgery for colic last Tuesday.

“It’s all good,” trainer Doug O’Neill said on Saturday. “I think in a day or two, he’ll go to the farm.”

O’Neill said Lava Man will continue his recovery at a farm “somewhere near Santa Anita.”

Lava Man underwent a procedure on Tuesday to correct a colon displacement. A 17-year-old, Lava Man won 17 of 47 starts and earned $5,268,706 from 2003-09. In recent years, he has been a stable pony for O’Neill.
