At Zia Park (New Mexico) yesterday:
In the 1st, 2-year-old Nemos Treasure “bobbled [at the] break, [was] fractious, bled [from the nostrils] [and was] vanned off.”
In the 6th, 4-year-old Satin N Pearls (in her first-ever time under the whip) “trailed the field and was vanned off after pulling up.”
In the 8th, 3-year-old Silverhill “went wrong nearing the quarter pole, was taken up and vanned off.” (He also required an ambulance after a race at Albuquerque in May.)
Is this what is to pass for entertainment in 21st Century America?
