Amalfi Sunrise Out of Debutante


Amalfi Sunrise | Benoit

Amalfi Sunrise (Constitution), winner of the Aug. 3 GII Sorrento S., has been taken out of training and will miss an expected start in the Aug. 31 GI Del Mar Debutante as she undergoes diagnostic tests this coming week.

“We’ll know more by Tuesday,” trainer Simon Callaghan said while confirming a story first reported by Daily Racing Form which said the 2-year-old filly was sore behind.

Owned by Doug Branham and Marsha Naify, Amalfi Sunrise was tabbed a ‘TDN Rising Star’ following her debut win at Santa Anita June 23. She romped home by a front-running six lengths in the Sorrento and most recently worked four furlongs in :48.80 at Del Mar Aug. 12.
