Dynamite Charge, shown here breaking her maiden impressively at Santa Anita, suffered a fatal training incident Sunday morning
Stonestreet Stables’ Dynamite Charge, a 2-year-old filly by Super Saver, was fatally injured during morning training hours Sunday morning, reports trainer Doug O’Neill’s Facebook page.
In her single career start, Dynamite Charge captured a maiden special weight race at Santa Anita by 4 1/4 lengths, covering 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.56 under Mario Gutierrez.
“With heavy hearts we are sad to share that the very promising filly, Dynamite Charge sustained a catastrophic training incident this morning,” reads the statement on O’Neill’s Facebook page. “She was so special in so many ways, not only was she gifted with tremendous ability but she was a gentle giant with one of the biggest hearts of any in the barn. Dynamite Charge will be greatly missed.”
We are heartbroken to share that our filly Dynamite Charge sustained a catastrophic training injury this morning. She will be much missed.
