Fault Suffers Hind Leg Injury During Gallop, Could Be Retired

Grade 1 Santa Margarita winner Fault suffered what could be a career-ending injury during a routine gallop on Sunday morning at Santa Anita, reports drf.com. The 2014 daughter of Blame was found to have a non-displaced condylar fracture in her rear left leg, and surgery has been scheduled for Monday to insert stabilizing screws.

Fault is owned by Agave Racing and Little Red Feather.

“The owners will talk among themselves and decide what to do,” trainer Phil D’Amato told drf.com. “She can race again, but the question is has she done enough? Will she be a broodmare or will they give her time to come back?”

Fault has won six of her sixteen starts, including the last three in a row, and has earned $618,795. The winner of graded stakes on both the dirt and the turf, she had been scheduled to start in the G1 Ogden Phipps next weekend.
