Fusaichiswonderful Suffers Stall Injury

An injury suffered in a minor stall mishap has resulted in the scratch of Unlimited Equine LLC’s Fusaichiswonderful from Saturday’s 30th running of the $100,000-added Dogwood Stakes (GIII) for 3-year-old fillies.

The daughter of 2000 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus suffered the injury in her stall at Keeneland on Friday, the eve of what would have been her first start for trainer Tevis McCauley

“She took a little hide off the inside of her leg, kind of right down the side of the tendon, and it blew up just a little bit,” McCauley said. “It probably would have been fine to run her – it’s more superficial than anything. But she’s too nice a filly to risk anything and I didn’t feel comfortable sending her over there.”

Fusaichiswonderful launched her career with a string of five victories in Puerto Rico that included four stakes wins. She moved to the U.S. barn of trainer Todd Pletcher, who saddled her in four races that included a small stakes race at Gulfstream Park. But she ran very well in a third-place finish behind Baby J in Belmont Park’s Victory Ride (GIII) and a runner-up effort behind So Many Ways in Churchill Downs’ Eight Belles (GIII) on Kentucky Derby Day.

McCauley’s filly, who had been cross-entered in the $400,000-added Charles Town Oaks at West Virginia’s Charles Town,  was one three late scratches from the Dogwood as of 1:45 p.m. EDT. She had already scratched from the Charles Town event.

Also declared from the Dogwood were Maggi Moss’ So Many Ways and Blazing Meadow Farm’s Thetaloveandmine.  Both of those fillies were cross-entered in the Charles Town race, as was Guadalupe High, a Ronny Werner-trained filly who remains in the race at Churchill Downs.
