NZ Trainer McKee In Hospital

Monday, 3rd May 2010

Prominent NZ trainer Stephen McKee "will remain in Waikato Hospital for several days for further tests after a health scare at the Te Rapa races" reported The Daily Telegraph. McKee (4th on the NZ trainers premiership with 49 wins this season) spent Saturday night in Waikato Hospital "after feeling unwell & complaining of pain between his shoulders & down one arm". There was "widespread concern for McKee at the track as he was placed on a stretcher & taken by ambulance to hospital". NZ Trainers Association executive officer Dennis Ryan said he'd spoken to McKee's wife Fiona "who was upbeat about her husband's condition", but McKee will "remain in hospital for at least 1 or 2 more days. He's still being monitored until they get to the bottom of what the problem is."
