Gr1 Runner-Up Heidilicious Euthanased At Flemington
Last season’s Gr1 Queensland Derby (2400m) runner-up & now 4YO mare Heidilicious (Zabeel-Kerkira, by Danehill) Heidilicious (Zabeel) was euthanased following a freak accident, while being saddled prior to the weekend’s Gr2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington. Heidilicious broke free from the racecourse stalls & charged to the top of the course, where she attempted to jump a fence & suffered major injuries. Heidilicious (a NZ$160,000 yearling at the 2009 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) recorded 2 wins & 3 placings from 8 starts for $99,988 earnings.
