Graded stakes winner Yawanna Twist euthanized
Yawanna Twist, winner of the General George Stakes (gr. II) in February, had to be euthanized after fracturing a femur in a hind leg while getting up following routine ankle surgery earlier this week.
The Richard Dutrow Jr.-trained horse was at the Rood and Riddle Equine Clinic in Lexington to have chips removed from each ankle. Coming out of anesthesia, Yawanna Twist apparently “got up the wrong way,” Dutrow said.
