From the most recent Oak Tree (California) Stewards Minutes:
“FEISTY’S CAUSE broke down entering the stretch [5th race, September 25]. The horse was euthanized on track due to compound fracture.”
In addition, there was this from the 8th, September 24: “Approaching the ¼ pole, BAMUEL TOI collapsed…horse stayed down for a few minutes and then rose, blood emanating from his nostrils. Track vet had the horse hosed off for a few minutes, after which the horse walked off the track on his own power.”
“Blood emanating from his nostrils” – but it’s okay, he walked off on his own power!
This is horseracing.
