The Equibase account of the 6th at Parx yesterday: “GREED IS GOOD tragically suffered a catastrophic injury to his left front about thirty yards from the finish. GREED IS GOOD’S momentum allowed him to cross the wire, he was pulled up quickly and he was euthanized on the track.”
“Momentum allowed him to cross the wire” after breaking down. Imagine that.
Greed Is Good was six and this was his 43rd time under the whip. A cheap claimer ($5,000), on three separate occasions this year he was raced twice in a week’s time. Just another disposable asset, disposed of.
Also, the most recent minutes at Santa Anita reveal two “fatalities” for the week September 24-September 30. Identities withheld.
Dead horses every day – this is horseracing.
