Champion Filly British Idiom Sidelined With Ankle Chip

British Idiom, 0-for-2 in 2020 after going undefeated in three starts during her championship 2-year-old season last year, will be sidelined due to a chip in her right front ankle, according to a report on Bloodhorse.com.

Brad Cox said the daughter of Flashback was sent to Dr. Larry Bramlage at Rood and Riddle Equine  Hospital in Lexington, Ky., for an evaluation after her worst career performance when 10th in the Grade 3 Fantasy Stakes at Oaklawn on May 1. “They saw a flake in there,” Cox told Bloodhorse.com.

British Idiom will be out of training about 60 days, according to the report.

Owned by Madaket Stables LLC, Michael Dubb and Stuart Grant’s The Elkstone Group LLC, British Idiom won her career debut at Saratoga in August, then swept the G1 Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland and G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita en route to winning an Eclipse Award as outstanding 2-year-old filly.

She finished second behind Finite, beaten 4 3/4 lengths, in her 2020 debut at Fair Grounds in the G2 Rachel Alexandra on Feb. 15, then was never a factor in the Fantasy.
