From the 1st at Parx yesterday: “NEW ROAD hopped at the start, went wrong before a quarter mile then was euthanized” (Equibase). “Went wrong.” New Road was a day shy of turning four; this was his 16th time under the whip.
In the 7th at Yonkers Monday, 8-year-old Pappy’s Pal “fractured [his] right front pastern” and, the Gaming Commission reports, “was subsequently euthanized.”
Two more dead animals for $2 bets. This is horseracing.
