Stakes winner and Open class pacer Get Out Of Dodge had to be put down earlier this week after sustaining a fatal injury.
Trainer Murray Brethour told Trot Insider that the six-year-old Artiscape-Dodge Kitty stallion shattered his right front pastern on Sunday at the trainer's farm. It was the same degree of injury that ended the racing career of thoroughbred Barbaro.
Owned by Ontario's Wayne Carleton, Dean Lockhart and Daniel Sarafian, Get Out Of Dodge won 17 races lifetime and banked more than $450,000 in purses. His biggest win came in the 2008 final of The Diplomat Series at Mohawk Racetrack, defeating that season's eventual Little Brown Jug winner Shadow Play. Get Out Of Dodge took his mark of 1:49.4 in a division of the New Jersey Sire Stakes at the Meadowlands.
After a less than stellar year at four, Get Out Of Dodge rebounded for a solid season at age five competing at the Open level while garnering $174,860 in earnings and winning a Preferred event on December 26, 2010.
