2-year-old Lyrical Passage is dead after suffering what Jay Privman of the Daily Racing Form calls an “awful fracture” in the 5th yesterday at Del Mar. The equine child becomes the first racing kill of the Fall Meet, third (at least) overall.
In NY, Our Sweet Lilly, also just two, is dead after breaking down while training Friday at Aqueduct (Gaming Commission). She was being prepped for her first race.
This is horseracing.
