The NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed the deaths of 4-year-old Indiana Stones and 7-year-old Sgt. Major Ross at Finger Lakes Saturday. The horses were killed in back-to-back races. Also, 3-year-old Bet With Charlie, a “went wrong, vanned off” on the chart Sunday at Churchill Downs, has been confirmed dead (DRF). In addition, over the past two days, three other horses were reported (by Equibase) as “broke down,” which, of course, almost always means dead:
3-year-old Blue Cres in the 1st at Zia Sunday
3-year-old Three’s a Trump in the 2nd at Thistledown yesterday afternoon
7-year-old Dreaming of Bella in the 8th at Mountaineer last night
This is horseracing.
