The official chart line (Equibase) for 3-year-old Submit in the 9th yesterday at Belmont: “…picked up interest angling into path five as three-quarters was being completed, fell, taking a fatal step…subsequently euthanized.”
“A fatal step.”
This makes two kills in as many racing-days at Belmont; in fact, Submit’s line is a virtual carbon copy of Top Fortitude’s from Sunday. We also know (Gaming Commission) that, like TF, Submit was euthanized on the track. Which, at least for me, begs the question: How, after bearing witness to such an event, could a person ever set foot in a racing arena again? Where is our collective conscience, America?
“Oh, Submit’s gone down there.” (pick up video around 1:47:55 mark)
