One Caroline, who won her first five career starts, has been sidelined by an undisclosed injury that occurred during a third-place finish to Malibu Prayer in the Chilukki Stakes (gr. II) Nov. 7 at Churchill Downs.
“When she wasn’t nominated to the Falls City (Handicap), I figured somebody would be calling,” trainer Rusty Arnold said of the 4-year-old daughter of Unbridled's Song . “She got hurt in the Chilukki, has had surgery and is now on the farm.”
Owned by G. Watts Humphrey Jr. and the Louise Ireland Humphrey Revocable Trust-2008, One Caroline suffered her first career loss in Churchill's Louisville Distaff (gr. II) on May 1. Shortly after that, she suffered an injury that sidelined her until the Chilukki.
“It is not the same injury and she has not been retired,” Arnold said. “The plan is to have her join the barn in Florida in February and try to run her (at Churchill Downs) Derby week. The goal is to run in the Louisville Distaff, the same race she ran in this year.”
One Caroline suffered her first career defeat in that Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) day race when she ran second to Miss Isella.
