The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that 2-year-old Arranmore Girl broke a shoulder yesterday during a morning workout at Del Mar and was subsequently euthanized. While the newspaper typically (and surprisingly) does a good job publishing Del Mar deaths, their claim that AG is the “third horse to be euthanized at Del Mar this meeting” is wrong, at least according to the CHRB Stewards Minutes:
7/6-7/12: 3 “deceased”
7/13-7/18: 1 “deceased” (Fit to Rule)
7/19-7/25: 2 “deceased” (including, presumably, Rush In)
That makes (at least) 7 dead horses so far this summer at “Cool As Ever” Del Mar.
