DEL MAR, Calif. – Pacific Heat, the three-time stakes winner, has been turned out for four months because of a recent injury, trainer Peter Eurton said.

Pacific Heat was disqualified from first to second in the Fran’s Valentine Stakes at Santa Anita in May. She had two workouts in June before she was taken out of training, Eurton said.

“I’ll give her some time,” Eurton said. “It’s unfortunate. She was taken down and got hurt.”

Pacific Heat won 4 of 8 starts and $381,185. She won three stakes for California-bred fillies in 2015 and 2016.
