Thursday night at the races…
In the 1st at Charles Town, 7-year-old Cockeyed Cowboy “broke down midstretch” (Equibase) and, I have confirmed, was euthanized. ‘Twas his 46th time under the whip.
In the 7th at Penn, 3-year-old Gentle Buzzing “broke down in early stretch and was humanely euthanized” (Equibase). The pot she was being whipped for: $14,300.
Also – from NY (Gaming Commission):
4-year-old Power Crazed “sustained shoulder injury” while training at Belmont January 29, “developed nerve damage” – euthanized yesterday.
3-year-old Basanite “died 10 minutes after being medicated with Prednisolone and Acepromazine” March 20 at Belmont – an “adverse drug reaction,” they’re calling it.
Four more animal sacrifices – for gambling.
