Glencrest Farm's undefeated Onlyforyou sustained a fatal injury while training Saturday morning at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream Park's satellite training center in Palm Beach County.
The Todd Pletcher-trained 3-year-old filly, who breezed in preparation for a scheduled start in the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) on March 29, had won all four of her career starts, including three during the Champions Meet.
“She had a complex condylar fracture that was displaced and irreparable. She worked and a little bit more than an eighth of a mile into the gallop she took a bad step,” Pletcher said.
The daughter of Malibu Moon captured her debut at Aqueduct in November before winning three straight at Gulfstream, including convincing victories in the Forward Gal (G2) and the Davona Dale (G2).
“Obviously, it's a sad moment for everybody. The barn takes it hard when stuff like that happens, especially when it's a filly like that who was perfect her whole career. It looked like she had a big future ahead,” Pletcher said.
