The Equibase chart note for Jury Wise in the 6th at Mahoning yesterday: “trailed into the turn, fell midway on the turn and was euthanized.” Jury Wise was a 7-year-old mare who was being raced for the 44th time; she was worth $5,000 the day she died.
This note comes from the 6th at Gulfstream last Thursday: “SHANGHAI JEWEL continued clear unasked along inside upper stretch, rider went to uncock right handed whip, [the 2-year-old horse] shied when doing so, bounced off inside then fell over rail, lost rider, caught by the outrider and walked off after race.”
“…rider went to uncock right handed whip, shied when doing so, bounced off inside then fell over rail…” But the whip is just a harmless guide, right? Vile. Horseracing.
