Ashbrook Farm and BBN Racing’s Grade I winner Concrete Rose (Twirling Candy) will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a hairline fracture in her right foreleg.
“We’re giving her some time off. It’s just a hairline fracture,” said Ashbrook Farm racing manager Bo Bromagen. “It’s one of those situations where it’s easiest to give her the time off. It’s best for the horse and best for everyone involved. We got the news this morning, we’d like to keep her in Kentucky the next 60 days.”
Concrete Rose, beaten just once in seven career starts, opened her sophomore season with a win in the GIII Florida Oaks in March and added the May 3 GIII Edgewood S. She then captured the July 6 GI Belmont Oaks, as well as the inaugural Saratoga Oaks Aug. 2.
