Finallymadeit, a graded stakes winner and millionaire, was euthanized after fracturing his left front cannon bone during a workout Aug. 4 at Saratoga, according to Daily Racing Form.

Finallymadeit was in the midst of his best season. The 5-year-old son of Concerto won two of his three graded stakes this year, capturing the Skip Away Stakes (gr. III) at Gulfstream Park and the Memorial Day Handicap (gr. III) at Calder Race Course. He ran second in this year’s Donn (gr. I) and Gulfstream Park (gr. II) Handicaps.

Finallymadeit’s other graded score came in the 2008 Fred W. Hooper Handicap (gr. III) at Calder.

Bred in Florida by Rolando Rodriguez and Rolbea Stables, Finallymadeit won 16 races and placed in a dozen others from 47 starts and earned $1,026,640 for Rolbea Thoroughbred Racing. In his final start, he ran third in the July 29 James Marvin Stakes at Saratoga in what was his first start for trainer Timothy Ritvo. He was scheduled to contest the Whitney Handicap (gr. I) at Saratoga on Aug. 8. He was formerly trained by Javier Negrete.

Finallymadeit was produced from the stakes-winning Gold Alert mare Gold for My Gal.
