Recepta (Speightstown) and jockey John Velazquez win the 2015 De La Rose Stakes at Saratoga. The filly later captured the G3 Noble Damsel at Belmont Park.

Talented turf mare Recepta, winner of the 2015 G3 Noble Damsel Stakes, suffered a fractured pelvis while galloping over Saratoga's main track Friday morning.

The Daily Racing Form reports that the 5-year-old daughter of Speightstown is currently resting comfortably at Rood and Riddle in Saratoga. Trainer Jimmy Toner told the Form that Recepta will not undergo surgery.

“The next 30 to 45 days are crucial,” Toner said. “Just stall rest. They have to be standing; you can't allow them to get up and down. If they do, they can refracture that and cause another problem.”

Toner said that Recepta was galloping around 9:30 a.m. when exercise rider Ozzi Zavala “heard something crack.” The mare was immediately pulled up and transported to Rood and Riddle.

Recepta, is a homebred raced by John Phillips and Pam Gartin. She won 5 races from 17 starts and earned $696,700. In addition to winning the Noble Damsel and De La Rose, Recepta took the Chelsey Flower Stakes and most recently was second in the G1 Just a Game and G1 Diana.
