Two Horses Die in Same Race at Monticello

This afternoon at snowy Monticello Raceway, two Standardbreds suffered fatal breakdowns in the 8th race. Benns Superman, driven by Jim Marohn Jr and trained by Rob Harmon, “choked up at stretch, fractured left front leg, [was] ambulanced off [and] euthanized”; Cosmic QI, driven by Bruce Aldrich Jr and trained by Michael Temming, “choked down and fell in infield and died.”

  1. Yes, atrocities occur in Standardbred racing, too. A woman, who has been involved in harness racing for years, told me that they inject their horses all the time to “keep them going”. What a sad state of affairs.
