"We've gone from thoroughbred to Western to hunter jumper and now Mike has horses coming here to be conditioned for the tracks at Santa Anita and Del Mar and doing rehab on thoroughbreds," Hentschel explains. "It's come full circle." "I've been riding and training horses my entire life," Arizona native Scully says. "I met Mr. Hentschel in 1999, and stayed 10 years, then Angie and I left to start Eclipse." Thoroughbred racing is a young horse's game. They typically begin racing at two years old. While it may look easy, run- ning around a track puts tremendous strain on a horse. "There is a high rate of injuries on the track, including chips and other bone issues. We provide rehab services to those horses," Scully says. It's the same as physical therapy for humans." Eclipse utilizes an array of high-tech methods to treat race horses. A Eurowalker is a treadmill used for both rehabilitation and training. For deep muscle therapy, a device called a Functional Electrical Muscle Stimulator is used. A powerful Class IV therapeutic laser decreases pain and inflammation while promoting tissue healing. Housed in a trailer, a Halotherapy unit provides inhalation therapy utilizing pharmaceutical- grade salt to improve lung function and purge toxins. "Soon, we will break ground on a therapy pool that will allow injured horses to walk with less stress and promote healing," Scully says. The epicenter of Stonepine's equestrian operation is a semi-circle shaped stable barn, the original structure built by the Russells. The proper- ty also contains a jumping and dressage area in the center of a four-furlong (half-mile) training race track. Other stables dot the land, some available for boarding. While there's room for 60, the Scullys plan to limit the num- ber of horses in rehab to between 20 and 25. "There are only four facilities like this in the nation," Scully says. "And only two on the west coast." The Hentschels and the Scullys are poised on the brink of a new chap- ter in the life of the venerable property once called the Double H and now known as Stonepine. Still a world-class luxury resort frequented by celebrities and notables, it's also become a premier thoroughbred horse rehabilitation and healing facility. The Crocker family would be proud.
