4-year-old Aragonite is dead after breaking down – a “musculo-skeletal injury,” says the Gaming Commission – in the 6th yesterday at Belmont. On the Equibase chart, aside from the usual garbage about “bad steps,” there was this:
“ARAGONITE…got put to a protective hold and was masterfully pulled up but unfortunately had to be euthanized on track.”
Hey, the jock did all he could. Vile.
