Cezanne (Curlin), a $3.65 million Fasig-Tipton Florida two-year-old who won the GII San Carlos S. and the GIII Oaklawn Mile S., was euthanized at Hagyard Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky after developing a fungal infection, according to trainer Todd Pletcher. “Cezanne developed a fungal infection in June and was sent to a clinic for treatment as soon as the infection was discovered,” said Pletcher. “He recovered well initially, but sadly, the infection returned. He was admitted to Hagyard Medical, where he underwent another intensive course of treatment. Unfortunately, the infection took over, his condition deteriorated, and upon veterinary advice, it was deemed necessary to euthanize him.”
