Yesterday’s 6th at Thistledown was the third ever race for a 3-year-old named Evasive Maneuver. Here is Equibase’s recounting: “…injured entering the turn…euthanized.”
Short, and right to the point.
Also, the NYS Gaming Commission reports this for 3-year-old Dr. Stone yesterday at Finger Lakes: “reared up, fell backwards and began to seizure – euthanized.” The Commission, of course, makes a great show of calling this a “Non-Racing” death. Well – Dr. Stone was a racing horse (last raced just a month ago); she died at a racing facility; at the time of her death – and throughout her entire abbreviated life – she was under the complete and utter control of the racing industry. Theirs? You bet.
