The complete Equibase line for Commander Seul’s run in the 10th last night at Delta: “Commander Seul was pulled up into the first turn and euthanized.” How’s that for an obituary? But then again, what more to expect for a 4-year-old (maiden) claimer who had averaged 24 1/2 lengths back in his four previous races.
Also – 3-year-old Little Love, a “faltered, vanned off after the finish” in Aqueduct’s 5th Thursday, is dead – broken leg, euthanized, says the Gaming Commission. Little Love was coming off a nine-month hiatus, reason unknown.
This is horseracing.
