"In mid-December McAnally, 80, underwent a procedure known as MAKOplasty for the partial replacement of a knee joint. The recovery from the anesthetic stress required by the surgery was tougher than McAnally had hoped, but lately he has back in a regular routine at the barn.

“Gary Stevens, Jim Cassidy, Bruce Jackson – they were using me as a guinea pig, waiting to see how I turned out so they could do it themselves,” McAnally said, managing a laugh.

“I needed both knees done but I just had them do the left so I could still drive while I recovered, but I didn’t even feel like doing that for a while. I was pretty miserable. What happened though is I’ve become a big believer in acupuncture. It was amazing how it helped. I’m getting around pretty good now, exercising the knee so it doesn’t get stiff.”
