“Fractured Both Front Knees”

The most recent Stewards Minutes for the LA County Fair (Los Alamitos) report that Valley Child, a 2-year-old being prepped for her first race, “fractured both front knees and fell just before the finish line” while training September 6 and, of course, was euthanized. Two broken knees – imagine that scene.

The Los Alamitos (QuarterHorse) Minutes report “one equine death due to racing injuries” for September 7-9. The dead horse, alas, remains anonymous.

This is horseracing.
