Throat Ulcer Slows Down Beholder

Nov. 02, 2012 - Arcadia, California, U.S - Beholder (KY) ridden by Garrett Gomez and trained by Richard Mandella, wins the Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (Grade I) at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.

Champion 2-year-old filly of 2012 Beholder likely had an excuse when she was second in her 3-year-old debut as the 1-5 favorite in Monday’s Grade II Santa Ynez Stakes.

“We did an exam of her yesterday, scoped her and found an ulcer in her throat, a small one that we can clean up real quick,” Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella said on a rainy Thursday morning. “She probably had a pretty sore throat in the race and didn’t even know it.”

Mandella is optimistic that the daughter of Henny Hughes can still make the Grade I Las Virgenes Stakes at one mile on March 2.

“I don’t think it will interfere because of the timing of it,” Mandella said. “She’s going to get an easy week anyway. We’ll treat it and work on it, and if she gets better quick enough, we’ll go; if it doesn’t, we’ll do something else.”

As for Malibu winner Jimmy Creed, who had been pointed to the Strub Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on Feb. 2, the son of Distorted Humor owned by B. Wayne Hughes is now ticketed for the Feb. 23 San Carlos Stakes, like the Malibu, a seven-furlong test.

“He had a little temperature last week,” Mandella said. “He got right over it but then he coughed a little the day before yesterday and now (with the track closed due to heavy rains) I can’t work him to catch up, so it’s (messed) up. We’ll just aim him to the San Carlos.”

Poor girl. Still tried hard, too.
