Scott Palmer, VMD, will assist NBC Sports with horse health information as the AAEP On Call veterinarian during the May 17 and 18 live-racing telecasts from Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Md. Dr. Palmer is standing in for Dr. Larry Bramlage, who sustained a head injury prior to the Kentucky Derby and has been medically cleared to return to work this week.

Dr. Palmer is the hospital director and a staff surgeon at the New Jersey Equine Clinic in Clarksburg, N.J., and dedicates much of his daily practice to racing. A longtime On Call spokesperson, he is a past president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners and is the immediate past chair of the AAEP Racing Committee.  Dr. Palmer is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse.  Currently, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
