Soldier Inthe Rain Dead at Belmont

3-year-old Soldier Inthe Rain is dead after breaking down in morning practice at Belmont yesterday. He is the 126th racehorse to die at a NYS track in 2014; for trainer Bruce Brown, this makes nine NY dead in five years.

  1. RIP Soldier Inthe Rain.
    One hundred and twenty six horses sacrificed to this corrupt gambling business and that is just in NY for one year.
    But Dr. Verderosa said “not that bad”. It would be interesting to know what that vet. would consider “bad”. ?

  2. I really do wonder, Rose, if Verderosa and the others like him believe their own lies. They must…how else can they live with themselves.

    Soldier Inthe Rain was sold to another master between his second-to-last and final race. Rest in peace, beautiful bay colt.
