I have confirmed that Charitable Star was euthanized on the track after breaking down at Charles Town Thursday night (race 4). She was three years old.
The NYS Gaming Commission reports that Nine Innings is dead after breaking down at Batavia (harness) last night (race 7). He was nine years old.
Young, old (relatively, that is), Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds – it matters not; the Racing grinder doesn’t discriminate.
