She Be Wild sidelined for Kentucky Oaks

She Be Wild, last year's 2-year-old filly champion, will miss the Kentucky Oaks after sustaining an injury during a routine gallop at Keeneland on Sunday, according to the Daily Racing Form.

She Be Wild underwent surgery later Sunday to repair a fracture in her left front pastern and is out indefinitely, trainer Wayne Catalano told the Racing Form.

Catalano said there was still hope She Be Wild could return to racing.

She Be Wild finished third in the Grade I Ashland Stakes at Keeneland in her most recent start.

Tiz Chrome was working toward Derby Trial

LOUISVILLE — A 3-year-old horse training for a final Kentucky Derby prep race was euthanized Sunday after collapsing during a workout at Churchill Downs.

Tiz Chrome's trainer Bob Baffert said the colt suffered a fatal fracture of the left front sesamoid during a workout Sunday morning. Tiz Chrome was scheduled to run in the Derby Trial on Saturday.

Baffert said the colt was working with another horse and the two were heading into the far turn when the injury occurred and Tiz Chrome fell, sending exercise rider Dana Barnes tumbling to the track surface.

Barnes was not injured.

Owned by the Lanni Family Trust, Mercedes Stable LLC and Bernard Schiappa, Tiz Chrome earned $67,850 with two wins in three starts.
