Spanish born Eugenio is our veterinary consultant attending the yard regularly to monitor each horse. He has plenty of experience with racehorses having worked with Liam Kearns at the Three Counties Equine Hospital. Eugenio was based at the Royal ’Dick’ School of Veterinary Studies where he lectured on equine surgery, with special interests in equine arthroscopy and podiatry. In 2020 Eugenio went freelance and is now available to see horses in our yard when required. Under his guidance we have access to many items of specialist equipment including an overground scope, gastroscope, exercise ecg, digital x ray, MRI scan, and he carries out soft palate cautery and minor operations on our yard. He can also carry out orthopaedic surgery using the facilities at the RDSVS in Edinburgh and Clyde Vet Group in Lanark. Eugenio is a racecourse vet and is often on duty at Musselburgh, Perth and occasionally Kelso giving us confidence if our horses are ever injured while racing. In his spare time he is kept very busy with his three young daughters and also enjoys running and both playing and watching rugby.
