8-year-old Cam Dan Kadandy is dead after suffering a “catastrophic injury” – fractured pastern and cannon, says Gaming Commission – in the 3rd at Saratoga Raceway last night. To date, 84 horses have perished on or at NY tracks in 2016.
Also from yesterday, Equibase reports that 3-year-old Exclusive “broke down” in the 6th at Thistledown. “Broke Down,” of course, almost invariably means dead.
Please stop betting on horse races. Lives are at stake. Literally.
