Talented filly Rondinella is facing a lengthy break from racing.

“Unfortunately, she suffered an injury to her hoof and she will be out for six months,” trainer Roger James said.

The daughter of Ocean Park was a stylish maiden winner, but then suffered a cardiac arrhythmia when tailing the field home in the Gr. 3 Desert Gold Stakes.

Rondinella bounced back to finish fourth in the Gr. 2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic before her setback.
