Graded stakes winner and beautiful filly Indyanne, who fractured a sesamoid in the La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita on Dec. 27, was euthanized today, as reported in both Bloodhorse and Thoroughbred Times online.
I took this short video of Indyanne before she was shipped to her owner's farm in Kentucky. Although I thought she appeared comfortable and happy, it was hard not to feel a certain uneasiness, knowing how many things can go wrong following the type of injury she sustained. It was with great sadness that I learned of her death.
My sincere condolences go to her owner, John Sikura, trainer Greg Gilchrist, and all who knew and loved her.
