Winning Impression, 12th In 2020 Kentucky Derby, Euthanized After Churchill Allowance

West Point Thoroughbreds and Pearl Racing’s Winning Impression, 12th in this year’s Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5, had to be euthanized after damaging his seasmoid after a turf allowance race at Churchill on Nov. 12, reports bloodhorse.com.

The 3-year-old son of Paynter was making his first start since the Derby, and rallied from well off the pace to finish third before bobbling near the wire. The Dallas Stewart trainee was pulled up around the turn and vanned off the course, but Winning Impression was unable to be saved.
