The first Stewards Minutes for Oak Tree at Pleasanton (Alameda County Fair, California) reveal one kill: Big Kid, while “working” at Golden Gate June 16.
BloodHorse reports that Untrapped was euthanized Monday for laminitis (after first suffering from colic). The 4-year-old colt was raced in the 2017 Kentucky Derby and had amassed over $850,000 earnings for his “connections” in less than two years. These two notes fully explain the BloodHorse article, for had he been a 6-year-old claimer toiling away at Penn National, we would not have heard a peep.
This is horseracing.
