Mi Sueno, California’s leading 2-year-old filly, suffered a condylar fracture of a cannon bone during a workout Sept. 29, in preparation for the Oct. 4 Oak Leaf Breeders’ Cup Stakes (gr. I) at Oak Tree at Santa Anita, according to Daily Racing Form. The injury, which came as she galloped out after working a half-mile at Hollywood Park, places her racing career in jeopardy.
By Pulpit, Mi Sueno races for Southern Equine Stable, owned by Michael Moreno and trainer Eric Guillot.
Mi Sueno has won both her added-money starts, taking the Darley Debutante (gr. I) and Sorrento (gr. III) Stakes, both at Del Mar this year. She ran second in her other two races and has earned $288,400.
Bred by Southern Equine in a partnership that also includes Hill ‘n’ Dale Equine Holdings and Bruce Lunsford, Mi Sueno was bought as a weanling by Southern Equine for $1.7 million at the 2007 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Her yearling half-brother (by Pulpit’s sire A.P. Indy) sold for $1 million to Coolmore associate Demi O’Byrne at the recent Keeneland September yearling sale.
Mi Sueno is the first foal out of grade I winner Madcap Escapade (by Hennessy).
