Grade 1 stakes winner
recovering nicely from a leg laceration suffered July 29 in the Nani Rose
Stakes, in which she finished third to Alaura Michele.
Karlovy Vary got her leg chopped up when she
ran in the Nani Rose, and she got 15 stitches in her right front leg,” said
trainer George “Rusty” Arnold of the 3-year-old Dynaformer filly, winner of the
Grade 1 Ashland this past spring at Keeneland. “They healed up, they’re out, and
there’s no permanent damage. She’s back on the racetrack and back in training.”
Arnold said there was a lot of concern
immediately after the race, but the cut, fortunately, missed the tendons and
“She’s fit, but she missed 10
days of training,” said Arnold, who is eyeing the Grade 1, $300,000 Garden City
Handicap, a 1 1/8-mile turf race in September 15 at
Belmont Park ,
Vary ’s next start.
