Here in a Hurry Dead at Belmont

An unraced 2-year-old by the name of Here in a Hurry fractured his shoulder – “after a bad step” – during morning practice at Belmont today and was euthanized. He is the 30th equine athlete killed at that esteemed track this year. This is horseracing.

  1. This is odd in that the horse’s front legs are not attached to the spine – bone to bone. They are attached by muscle.

    It is actually horrendous.

  2. So many “bad steps” !! Would you not think these people could be a bit more “creative” with their excuses !

    I’m thoroughly disgusted with what goes on and on in this business,and the insulting excuses used regarding the carnage. For instance, Formulaforsuccess, who was eased in the 3rd race 10/18/2013 at Belmont before he fell heavily and was declared a victim of an “apparent heart attack” !!!

    The horse was claimed by the Ramseys and then claimed by team Rudy Rodrigues and Michael Dubb. He was not a winner for the Ramseys but did win on his first start for Rudy and Dubb. they made a $10,000 profit. His next start for that team was the fatal “heart attack” !! What REALLY happened to that unfortunate horse ??

    Yes, Formulaforsuccess was a victim but not of a “heart attack”. He was a victim of this outrageous “sport” and, in particular, the pariahs heavily involved in the sickening “claiming game”.
