Weemissfrankie out 4-6 months

Weemissfrankie, who finished fourth as the favorite in the $402,000 Hollywood Starlet Saturday, suffered a condylar fracture to her right front leg and was scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday, according to trainer Peter Eurton.

 

Weemissfrankie stumbled at the start of the 1 1/16-mile race from post one under Rafael Bejarano. “It probably happened when she went to her nose at the start, and probably got worse during the race,” said Eurton. “It didn’t get really bad until she got back to the barn.”

 

Eurton said the filly was scheduled to be vanned to Los Alamitos Sunday morning and be operated on by Wayne McIlwraith, a renowned surgeon.

 

“She only got beat 2 ¾ lengths on three legs,” said Eurton, marveling at the courage of the filly, who was seeking to become only the second to sweep the Del Mar Debutante, Oak Leaf Stakes and Starlet.

 

The mood was much different in the Jerry Hollendorfer stable, celebrating the upset victory by Killer Graces in the Starlet. “She was very happy,” said assistant Dan Ward. “She was just dragging the guy around this morning.”

 

Killer Graces, giving Hollendorfer his second Starlet win in three years, is expected to return at Santa Anita this winter.

 

Jose Miranda, assistant to trainer Ron McAnally, said that Starlet runner-up Charm the Maker also returned in good shape.
