Bejarano was stretchered off the track & taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla for examination where X-rays showed he suffered fractures of the jaw, nose, and orbital bones in the mishap. Mi Rey "suffered a catastrophic injury to his right front leg & was euthanaised". A multiple Argentine Gr2 winner, Mi Rey won 10 of 37 starts and earned US$199,932.
