Statement from Sagamore General Manager Tom Mullikin
After Walkwithapurpose’s final gallop this morning in preparation of
the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, she took a bad step and bruised her foot
making her unable to compete in the race tomorrow. X-rays have been
taken and showed up negative, but we want to take the necessary
precautions. We will find another race for her down the road after her
foot has time to heal, and we are confident she has a great racing
career ahead of her.
is very disappointing for the entire Sagamore Racing team after putting
in so much hard work over the past few months to get us to this point.
We were very excited about the opportunity to have our homebred filly
in one of Maryland’s most prestigious races.
will look to rebound on Saturday and enjoy Preakness Weekend. We would
like to thank all of our fans for their overwhelming support.
