Lady Kaya Suffers Fatal Accident

Lady Kaya Suffers Fatal Accident

Trainer Sheila Lavery has announced devastating news regarding her stable-star Lady Kaya, revealing she broke her leg in training on Tuesday morning.

Lady Kaya was gearing up for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot next week with her final piece of work taking place at the Curragh before the accident occurred.

Vets attended to the filly by boxing her off and taking her to Anglesey Lodge, but sadly she could not be saved from her injuries.

Tweeting the news, Lavery said: "We are absolutely heartbroken here, Lady Kaya broke her leg this morning and could not be saved.

"No words describe the beauty of Lady Kaya."

The three-year-old had been waited with for the royal meeting since finishing a fantastic second to Hermosa in the Qipco 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket - who went onto complete the double at the Curragh subsequently.

A daughter of Dandy Man, she looked a big player on paper for the Group One six furlong event in Berkshire, in which she was priced around the 7/1 mark.

She was attracting plenty of money and support after her performance on the Rowley Mile in May, and even more so after the news that John Gosden's Coventry winner Calyx was to miss the meeting through injury.

The filly will be a massive loss for Sheila, who has only been training in County Meath, Ireland since 2012.

Two months ago, she had never previously saddled a Classic runner, yet her little star earned some valuable place money for the yard, and at times shaped like the winner in the Guineas.

She won her trial at Leopardstown back in April, having only been purchased for €12,000 at the yearling sales, by Sheila's neice Joanne who won the rights to her after no challenging bids.

Sadly, we will not see Lady Kaya figure again, and our hearts and thoughts go out to her connections.
