Panty Raid, 4, retired with injury


Panty Raid, the 4-year-old multiple Grade 1 winner, has been retired by co-owners Glencrest Farm and Dan Tayloe because of an injury she sustained last week, the co-owner of Glencrest, John Greathouse, said on Wednesday.

Panty Raid, who was trained by Todd Pletcher, suffered a torn suspensory in her right foreleg. The injury was discovered May 19, one day after she worked four furlongs on soft turf at Belmont Park in preparation for the Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay Handicap last Saturday.

"We had two different vets looking at the ultrasounds in two different ways," Greathouse said. "And the only conclusion you could come to is that by the time she got back to racing in the fall, it was going to be a mountain too high to climb."

Panty Raid arrived at Glencrest Farm on May 22, Greathouse said. She will not be bred this year, according to Greathouse.

Panty Raid is a daughter of Include out of the Private Account mare Adventurous Di. Glencrest purchased the filly at a 2-year-olds in training sale at Keeneland for $275,000.

As a 3-year-old, Panty Raid won the Grade 1 American Oaks Invitational on the Hollywood Park turf and then the Grade 1 Spinster Stakes over Keeneland's artificial surface. In her only start this year, she finished last in the Grade 3 Doubledogdare Stakes at Keeneland. She retires with a record of 5 wins from 10 starts and earnings of $1,052,380.
