The latest Stewards Minutes from Golden Gate confirm the death of Califo Cat, who, according to Equibase, was “pulled up lame and vanned off” (or, in the words of the stewards, “was given a ride home in the horse ambulance”) in the 6th June 1. “Damaged” sesamoid. The 8-year-old was “For Sale” at $7,000 the day he died. In addition, there were three other kills reported – one training on May 30, and a pair training on June 3. Those names, however, were withheld.
And – in the “Vet Report” for Santa Anita for the week May 28-June 3, two “fatalities” are listed: one was Waya Ed on June 2; one remains anonymous.
This is horseracing.
