A Jealous Woman Has Throat Ailment

Megahertz Stakes winner A Jealous Woman, who finished a disappointing sixth by nearly 15 lengths as the 4-1 second choice in Monday’s Grade II Buena Vista Stakes, had an excuse in the one-mile turf race captured convincingly by Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Mizdirection, the 3-5 favorite.

“Apparently she ate a piece of straw that got caught in her throat and caused an infection,” said Eddie Meza, husband of Francis Meza, who trains A Jealous Woman for the Three Cent Stable.

“She was not able to breath properly in the race,” Francis said. “Brice (jockey Brice Blanc) said she didn’t perform because she was trying to catch her breath. She could have been on the lead with Mizdirection if you look at the (final) time of 1:33.50, because she ran in 1:33 flat when she won the Megahertz.

“But the good thing about it,” Eddie continued, “is she didn’t bleed. Doctors have given her antibiotics and in about five days the swelling will go down. They’ll scope her tomorrow or the next day. If it goes down, we’re safe. If not, we’ll have to do minor surgery to get the infection out.”
