Multiple Graded Stakes Winner, $3.65 Million Purchase Cezanne Euthanized After Fungal Infection

The Thoroughbred Daily News reports that multiple graded stakes winner and $3.6 million 2-year-old purchase Cezanne has been euthanized due to a fungal infection. Owned by Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith, and St. Elias Stable, Cezanne was trained by Bob Baffert to win both the Grade 2 San Carlos Stakes and the G3 Oaklawn Mile.

A 5-year-old son of Curlin, Cezanne had been transferred to the barn of Todd Pletcher when the infection was discovered.

“Cezanne developed a fungal infection in June and was sent to a clinic for treatment as soon as the infection was discovered,” Pletcher told TDN. “He recovered well initially, but sadly, the infection returned. He was admitted to Hagyard Medical, where he underwent another intensive course of treatment. Unfortunately, the infection took over, his condition deteriorated, and upon veterinary advice, it was deemed necessary to euthanize him.”

Out of the Bernardini mare Achieving, Cezanne is from the family of Belmont Stakes winner Rags to Riches. He was a $3.65 million 2-year-old purchase at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Select sale. A four-time winner from seven career starts, Cezanne earned $347,000 on the racetrack.
