Report: Lady Eli May Not Be Through Racing Yet

Sol Kumin, part owner of fan favorite turf mare Lady Eli, told The Blood-Horse‘s Alicia Wincze-Hughes Thursday that the 5-year-old may not be through racing yet.

Lady Eli has been recovering on the farm after a troubled trip in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf left her with a puncture wound and lacerations on her hind legs. Kumin stated he and the other members of her team are trying to decide whether to send the mare back into training with Chad Brown in Florida, or to breed her to a commercially-appealing stud and sell her in November.

Lady Eli inspired a strong fan following after recovering from laminitis to make a successful return to racing, and Kumin emphasized her future career will depend on her physical and mental condition. Currently, she is fully recovered from the lacerations sustained in the Breeders’ Cup and is sound.

Plans had originally called for her to be auctioned at Keeneland November after her run in the Breeders’ Cup, but she was removed from the sale after the race.
