A Kill at Far Hills – “A Memory to Last a Lifetime”

Equibase’s line for Top Man Michael in the 7th at the Far Hills Steeplechase yesterday: “led midway including his last four jumps, broke down and was euthanized.”

Juxtapose that with this from the Far Hills website: “Far Hills Race Meeting is New Jersey’s premier social and sporting event. For nearly a century, this annual gathering has attracted a large and loyal fan base who return, year after year, to watch the world’s finest steeplechases, reconnect with family and friends, network, support worthy causes and make memories to last a lifetime.”

Watching a horse break and die – a memory to last a lifetime. Vile.
