‘Miracle Horse’ Catemaco Eyeing Comeback For Mulhall

“Miracle Horse” Catemaco, whose life was gallantly saved by his trainer and breeder Kristin Mulhall in July 2017 at the age of four months, has recovered from a lingering cough that has prevented him from training and racing recently.

Mulhall hopes to have the 4-year-old California-bred son of Girolamo owned by Twilight Racing and Steve Taub ready run at Del Mar, which opens July 17.

“He’s such a big horse and I didn’t want to rush him,” said Mulhall, whose rapid and rudimentary emergency action after the colt was bitten by a Black Widow spider saved him from death going on four years ago.

Thanks to Mulhall, her veterinarian Dr. Melinda Blue, Bob Baffert’s exercise rider Humberto (Beto) Gomez, and Dr. Andreas Klohnen at Chino Hills Equine Hospital, Catemaco’s life was saved after an extensive ordeal and he made a full recovery.

On Jan. 1 at Santa Anita, he won his first and only race by four lengths at 14-1, considerably shorter than his odds of survival, relatively speaking.
