Glencrest Farm's grade II winner Disposablepleasure has gone to the sidelines following a fourth-place finish in the Ogden Phipps Handicap (gr. I), owner John Greathouse said May 31.

The 2013 Sixty Sails Handicap (gr. III) winner, a 4-year-old daughter of Giacomo  , was examined by Dr. Larry Bramlage of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital near Lexington after her disappointing run at Belmont Park May 27.

"Dr. Bramlage found a semi-lunar distal cannon bone fracture of the articular surface and a villonodular mass in the front of the fetlock joint," Greathouse said. "She's home here at Glencrest, we will evaluate her in 60 to 90 days and see if a comeback is possible." 
 
Disposablepleasure won her first two starts this year, an allowance at Gulfstream Park and the Sixty Sails at Hawthorne Racecourse prior to her start in the Phipps for trainer Todd Pletcher. 
 
"Her race in the Sixty Sails was arguably her best everthat's what our numbers tell usso it is with heavy hearts that we lose her when her best may have been before her," Greathouse said in a release. 
 
"We will give her the sixty days and reevaluate the situation. As usual we are grateful for what Todd and his stable have accomplished with her."
 
Bred by Doug Branham out of the With Approval mare My Canada, Disposablepleasure was a $45,000 purchase at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton select July yearling sale. Trained exclusively by Pletcher, the gray filly won the Demoiselle Stakes (gr. II) at Aqueduct Racetrack as a 2-year-old, and at 3 placed in the Mother Goose Stakes (gr. I) and Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (gr. II), and was third in the Fair Grounds Oaks (gr. II).
 
Disposablepleasure is a half-sister to stakes winner Romantic Hideaway. Her dam is a full sister to grade I-placed stakes winner Patriot Love and a half sister to graded winner Riley Tucker and multiple stakes winning sire Deputy Country.
