Cheers for Sidney Dead at Gulfstream

Reported (on the official chart) as “fell, vanned off” in the 5th at Gulfstream yesterday, 3-year-old Cheers for Sidney is in fact dead – euthanized, according to the Paulick Report, “due to her injuries.” Of course, the only reason Paulick disclosed this death is because the jockey was dinged up (“wrist pain”). This is horseracing.

  1. Another baby dead in the dirt, a fate he never deserved. R.I.P. baby, your life mattered to us and we will remember you.

    Good work bettors, your $2.00 bet just took the life of another baby. When will it be enough blood spilled for you to say “it’s not worth it” and walk away… I beg you to give them a chance at a better life away from racing, in the pasture where they can run free with their own herd, the way their lives were meant to be. Is that $2.00 bet really that important in the real scope of things. Just say to yourself “I’ll give them a chance, no more”. I guaranty that you will feel really good about yourself for saving a life today. Marlene Thornley

  2. Ditto to Marlene Thornley….three years olds are just babies and not even matured enough to carry the weight expected of a mature horse. They are still termed fillies or colts which means baby horse! WHAT a WASTE of a young life!
