In the 7th yesterday at Santa Anita, Warrenscrystalized “broke down and fell in [the] deep stretch” (Equibase) and was euthanized. BloodHorse (only reporting on it because a pair of jockeys were hospitalized) called the break “severe.” Warrenscrystalized was six. Oh, and insult to kill, the chartwriter relays that “[she] broke down on her own.”
Meanwhile, the NYS Gaming Commission reports that Freudian Dilemma was “found deceased in stall” at Finger Lakes Wednesday – “gastric/digestive issues without resolution.” Freudian was nine and had been put to the whip 64 times. His most recent race came just six days prior to turning up dead. A “non-racing” casualty? Please.
