The Casualties, 1/16/17-1/22/17

Last week on American tracks (not including training and harness casualties):

“Broke Down” (racing-speak for dead); “Collapsed and Died”; “Euthanized”

Northern Mine, Parx
Kinghorn, Penn
T. Montana, Santa Anita
Lost Note, Aqueduct

“Vanned Off” – required horse ambulance to get off the track; many of these names will re-surface on my year-end FOIA death-reports

Call Me an Illusion, Louisiana
Butterflysforshandee, Turf
Uncle Hen, Parx, not reported as vanned, but “pulled up in distress”
Ross J Dawg, Gulfstream
Sum Candy, Turf
Storm Pursuit, Aqueduct
Latent Fire, Charles Town
Signalpath, Oaklawn
Price Zurs, Aqueduct
Cinnamon Apple, Fair Grounds
Hazel Eyed Girl, Penn
Top Council, Oaklawn

“Bled”; “Returned Bleeding From Nostrils” – usually indicates pulmonary hemorrhage

Bluegrass Chat, Parx
Arch Contender, Aqueduct
The Gray Hound, Golden Gate
