Unbeaten three-year-old filly Onlyforyou was euthanized on Saturday after suffering multiple fractures while galloping out from a workout at Palm Meadows Training Center. She was timed in 1:02 for five furlongs over the fast dirt prior to the tragic incident.

"She was on the gallop out after working this morning; I guess she made a bad step," owner John Greathouse of Glencrest Farm told The Blood-Horse's Claire Novak. "I haven't seen the report yet so I can't say much. I don't know what leg it was, but it was multiple fractures; sesamoids weren't involved but there was so much of it that they just couldn't do much."

KellySummers Wietsma tweeted out that trainer Todd Pletcher said Onlyforyou, "had a complex condular fracture that was displaced and irreparable. She worked and a little bit more than an eighth of a mile into the gallop she took a bad step. It's a sad moment for everybody. The barn takes it hard when stuff like that happens...especially when it's a filly like that."

Onlyforyou easily captured all four of her career starts, starting with a maiden special weight last November at Aqueduct. She closed out her juvenile campaign with a 3 1/2-length score against optional claiming rivals at Gulfstream in December, and returned a month later for her stakes debut in the Grade 2 Forward Gal.

The Malibu Moon filly led all the way home in that seven-furlong contest, and stretched out to 1 1/16 miles most recently to post a 2 1/4-length victory in the Grade 2 Davona Dale. Those two wins were enough to assure Onlyforyou a starting berth in the May 2 Kentucky Oaks gate with 60 points on the "Road to the Kentucky Oaks" series of races.

Onlyforyou compiled $308,100 to go along with her perfect four-for-four mark.
