WALKWITHAPURPOSE OUT OF THE BLACK-EYED SUSAN STAKES


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.
