The unbeaten three-year-old was diagnosed with the injury after a half-mile workout on Thursday at Santa Anita Park. Nadal underwent surgery at a local equine hospital.

Nadal, along with stablemate Charlatan, was an early favorite in September's Kentucky Derby. Nadal won one segment of the Arkansas Derby on May 2.
