3-year-old Notaria “broke down” in the 2nd at Parx yesterday afternoon and, according to the Equibase chartwriter, “was humanely euthanized.” Prior to dying, the Charles Cuprill-trained filly had been put to the whip seven times, all “maiden” level at cheap Penn National. In those seven races, she finished 5th or below five times and averaged 13 lengths back. In other words, that she is dead should come as no surprise.

This is horseracing.

The state of New Mexico can be particularly proud: Between its two currently active tracks (Albuquerque and Ruidoso), 14 different horses were ambulanced off over the past three days. It’s likely that many – a majority? – of those are dead.
