Elda Dead at Penn; Three Anonymous Dead at Santa Anita

4-year-old Elda is dead – “humanely euthanized,” says Equibase – after breaking down in the 2nd last night at Penn. In all, Elda was put to the whip 17 times; she endured five different trainers in less than 18 months: Robert Hess Jr, Robert Hess Sr, Steven Miyadi, Scott Lake, and Timothy Hooper.

Also from yesterday, 3-year-old Tiz B the One broke down in the 1st at Pimlico and can safely be presumed dead. Trainer, Patricia Farro.

And finally, in the Santa Anita Stewards Minutes for 4/6-4/12, three horses are reported dead – identities, though, withheld. Curiously, while the occasional name (of a dead horse) pops up on these California minutes, I was told by the CHRB’s “Public Records Coordinator” that the “names of deceased horses…is not considered public information that the CHRB is able to provide.”

This is horseracing.
