Beholder recovered after spiking fever
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Arcadia, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Two-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder has been examined and is fully recovered after spiking a fever in October that forced her to be withdrawn from defending her title in this year's Breeders' Cup Distaff.
Trained by Richard Mandella for Spendthrift Farm, Beholder had x-rays of her lungs which came back "perfect."
"I've sent her to Julie Adair Stack's facility in Chino," Mandella said. "She'll be there a couple weeks just to get the edge off and get started back jogging. Then I'll bring her back. She looks like 10 million dollars."
Beholder, champion 2-year-old filly of 2012 and last year's champion 3-year- old filly, won her second straight Zenyatta Stakes on Sept. 27 at Santa Anita. The 4-year-old filly won last year's Distaff by 4 1/4 lengths over Close Hatches.
She has won 10 of 15 starts, including the 2012 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, for $3,368,300.
