Two top fillies forced to miss Breeders' Cup.
USA LEADING juvenile filly Wickedly Perfect and top threeyear-old filly Devil May Care were two high-profile Breeders' Cup absentees on Saturday, writes Nicholas Godfrey.
According to the Daily Racing Form, Wickedly Perfect, winner of Friday's Grade 1 Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland, is out for the season because of a bone chip in a knee.
"She had a little heat in a left knee," said trainer Doug O'Neill.
"We did x-rays and she has a chip. It's a bummer because we'll miss the Breeders' Cup, but the prognosis is 100 per cent."
Devil May Care, sure to have been a leading contender for the Ladies' Classic, is on the sidelines with hepatitis.
Winner of the Mother Goose and Coaching Club American Oaks, Devil May Care will be treated with antibiotics and have a couple of months out of training, according to trainer Todd Pletcher.
