Cannon-bone fracture sidelines Chao Chom


ARCADIA, Calif. – The California-bred stakes winner Chao Chom, who was pulled up in the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes on Dec. 26, will be out six months after X-rays revealed a cannon-bone fracture.

Trainer Gary Stute said Friday that the condylar fracture was a “hairline” break, and he expects the 4-year-old filly to return later in 2017. Chao Chom won the $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes on Nov. 13 at Del Mar before she was pulled in the La Brea.

Sired by Tizbud, Chao Chom has won two races and $146,945 from eight starts.
