■ Amun Re, a 4-year-old Great Pyramid gelding, became the second horse to suffer a catastrophic breakdown during the Keeneland Fall Meet when he fractured his right front ankle in the stretch of Sunday's fifth race on the turf.
■ Jockey Gabriel Saez, who was thrown from his mount Irish Exchange when the 2-year-old filly clipped heels with Coup and fell in the stretch of Saturday's 10th race at Keeneland, was released from University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital on Saturday. Saez complained of hip and shoulder pain when he was being attended to Saturday and taken off his mounts Sunday. Trainer Larry Jones, who conditions Irish Exchange, said Saez had a hoofprint on his back from where he had been stepped on. "They told him he could go back to riding as soon as he wanted to ride, but we'll see how it goes," Jones said. "He said to me, 'I'll see you in the morning,' but that was under some morphine." Jones added that Irish Exchange was also in good order with no major injuries. The dark bay daughter of Exchange Rate got her hind legs stuck under the rail after going down but lay remarkably still on her back without thrashing about until she could be freed. "All she is worried about this morning is eating," Jones said.
■ Together, who won Saturday's Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup one week after running second in the 1-mile First Lady Stakes at Keeneland, was scheduled to return to Ireland on Sunday but could come back to Kentucky for a start in the Breeders' Cup at Churchill Downs. "She didn't have to run very hard, and she was pulling away at the end," said Kieran Murphy, assistant to trainer Aidan O'Brien.
