Sagamore’s Walkwithapurpose scratched from Black-Eyed Susan

Posted on 16 May 2013 by WNST Staff


Statement from General Manager Tom Mullikin

Baltimore, Md. — After Walkwithapurpose’s final gallop this morning in preparation of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, she took a bad step and bruised her foot making her unable to compete in the race tomorrow.  X-rays have been taken and showed up negative, but we want to take the necessary precautions.  We will find another race for her down the road after her foot has time to heal, and we are confident she has a great racing career ahead of her.

This is very disappointing for the entire Sagamore Racing team after putting in so much hard work over the past few months to get us to this point.  We were very excited about the opportunity to have our homebred filly in one of Maryland’s most prestigious races.

Sagamore will look to rebound on Saturday and enjoy Preakness Weekend.  We would like to thank all of our fans for their overwhelming support.

About Sagamore Racing:
Sagamore Racing is a professional horse racing team based at historic Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, Md. Once owned by Alfred G. Vanderbilt II, Sagamore Farm was developed into a world renowned racing and breeding operation from 1933 – 1986. During that time, Sagamore became home and the eventual resting place of Hall of Fame horses Native Dancer, Bed o’Roses and Discovery. In 2007, Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, a Maryland native, purchased the 530-acre farm implementing a long-term restoration plan with the mission to breed, raise and race Thoroughbreds at the sport’s highest level, while preserving its storied and rich tradition.
