6-year-old The Program, trained and owned by Ronny Werner, was killed in yesterday afternoon’s 8th race at Fair Grounds. This, after he “came under a drive [from jockey Brian Hernandez Jr] in [the] upper stretch.” The race was of the $5,000 claiming variety. Just another expendable asset expended.

Also, on Wednesday, 2-year-old Changeinaction, with but one start under his belt, broke a leg “breezing” on Belmont’s training track and was killed where he lay. The equine child was trained by Dominic Galluscio and owned by Bob Petersons Stables. This marks Galluscio’s sixth death on NY tracks since 2009 – three racing, three training.
