Record-breaking Cazoo Oaks winner Snowfall has lost her fight against a suspected pelvic injury.Aidan O’Brien said his star filly, who won the fillies’ Classic by the longest ever distance in the summer, injured herself at home.The trainer reported that the five-time winner’s condition sadly worsened and the team at Ballydoyle were forced to make a “heartbreaking decision” on veterinary advice.The loss comes seven months on from Snowfall’s record 16-length win at Epsom with Frankie Dettori in the saddle.
O’Brien told the Racing Post: “We are very sorry to report that our wonderful filly Snowfall sustained a serious injury a few weeks ago.
“Despite the best care and attention from our veterinary team and from our team in here in Ballydoyle her condition seriously deteriorated a couple of days ago and we were left with no choice but to take the heartbreaking decision to have her put to sleep.”
A daughter of Deep Impact and Galileo’s G3 winning daughter Best In The World, Snowfall won four of 15 starts, and captured all of the G1 Cazoo Oaks, G1 Juddmonte Irish Oaks and G1 Darley Yorkshire Oaks in 2021.
