Iza injures herself
"It's official. Iza Valentine , California's 1985 Broodmare of the year, is out of the Breeder's Cup Classic," the racing stables at Our Mims Retirement Haven announced at 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1.
Iza Valentine was the only hopeful from OMRH this year. She was fit and ready but a torn suspensory and possible fractured sesmoid dashed all hopes for the stables older mare division.
"We don't know when she injured herself. She was probably practicing during the wee hours, last night," said Jeanne Mirabito, OMRH owner. "You just never know with Iza what you'll find on any given day."
Iza Valentine will be stall bound for several days at the very least.
