Corporate Jungle, who was pulled up during the July 24 Wickerr Stakes at Del Mar, sustained a fractured sesamoid of the right fetlock, according to trainer Tom Proctor, who said via Twitter the prognosis that the 5-year-old horse can be saved is "good/guarded."
A 5-year-old son of Giant's Causeway who won the 2012 Appleton Stakes (gr. IIIT) for owners Gary and Mary West, Corporate Jungle stalked the early pace in the one-mile Wickerr on grass before taking a bad step nearing quarter pole, according to the Equibase chart. The 5-2 second choice was vanned off following the race won by favored Indy Point.
A $210,000 Keeneland September yearling sale purchase, Corporate Jungle has won four of 13 starts with earnings of $293,667, all on turf.
