I have confirmed that 3-year-old Bee Boppin Along was euthanized after “pulling up lame” in the 7th race Thursday at Charles Town. The filly – under the care of trainer/owner Gerasimos Moschonas – had three last-place finishes this summer:
June 28th, 10th, 44 1/2 lengths back
July 31st, 9th, 24 3/4 lengths back
August 21st, 9th, 15 1/2 lengths back
Bee Boppin Along is the fifth confirmed death this week of a horse originally reported as merely “vanned off.” This is horseracing.
