Two Standardbreds were killed in a horrific head-on collision Thursday night at Flamboro Downs (Ontario). After falling early and losing his driver, Buckbuckbuck Mach began running in the wrong direction, eventually crashing into A Sudden Twist. Standardbred Canada reports that Stephane Larocque, Buckbuck’s trainer, is “distraught,” and asks us to “join [them] in sharing condolences with the connections of Buckbuckbuck Mach and A Sudden Twist.” Horseracing’s self-delusion on full display, yet again.
The double death…
Wow. That is awful to say the least.
Why the hell didn’t they have stopped the race!! This could have been avoided :(
