Bone bruising sidelines Turallure

Turallure, the beaten favorite in three major turf races this year, will be getting at least 60 days off after apparent bone bruising was diagnosed and will miss the upcoming Saratoga meet, if not the rest of the year, trainer Charlie Lopresti said early Friday from his Keeneland base.

Turallure, owned by the Four D Stables of Donna Arnold, was second in the Grade 1 Maker’s 46 in April at Keeneland, then seventh in the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic on Kentucky Derby Day at Churchill Downs, and fourth in the Grade 2 Firecracker Handicap last weekend on closing day of the Churchill spring meet. He was the wagering favorite in all three, including the 7-10 choice in the Firecracker.

“I’ve been scratching my head about why he hasn’t run as well as we know he can,” said Lopresti, adding that noted veterinarian Dr. Larry Bramlage had taken “a bone scan, and sure enough he lit up in a lot of spots, including the ends of all his cannon bones and his stifles.”
