What a great story about, Knowhere,  a racehorse who would have been a has been too soon, had it not been for adult stem cell therapy. Knowhere is going somewhere if his recent Gold Cup trial win tell us anything.

VetCell is a biotech at the forefront of collecting, processing, and delivering stem cells culled from equine umbilical cords and bone marrow for use primarily in racehorses.  Interestingly, though there would be no ethical conflict in obtaining and using cells from animal embryos (though certainly still icky), VetCell chooses to work with adult stem cells.
