Catholic Boy Bled ‘A Significant Amount’ In Florida Derby, To Have A Break

Remsen Stakes winner Catholic Boy finished fourth in Saturday’s G1 Florida Derby, but it was discovered that the colt bled during the race, reports drf.com.

“Unfortunately, he bled a significant amount,” said John Panagot, part-owner Robert LaPenta’s racing manager. “We’re going to have to stop on him and let him heal.”

Catholic Boy was beaten 12 lengths by Audible, Hofburg, and Mississippi in the Florida Derby. He will return to Bridlewood Farm in Ocala for time off, where he will also spend some time recovering inside the hyperbaric chamber.
