Deaths confirmed by the NYS Gaming Commission:
5-year-old Cinder Block broke a leg (“went wrong,” says Equibase) in the 2nd yesterday at Belmont. The “claim” (sale), by the way, was voided. Death will do that.
A yet-to-be-named 2-year-old was felled training last Saturday at Finger Lakes. Another child sacrificed for $2 bets.
A “pony horse” named Willy was euthanized Tuesday in his Belmont stall after being “treated for colic without improvement.” Sad life, sad end.
