Mad Magic Dead at Pimlico

I have confirmed that 6-year-old Mad Magic was euthanized on-track after snapping her ankle in last Friday’s 1st race at Pimlico. In a 3 1/2-year career spanning 41 starts, Mad Magic was shuffled among nine different trainers – Sandra Adkins, Eric Reed, Herbert Reed, Louis Linder Jr, Marya Montoya, Steve Kelsaris, Michael Pino, Michael Moore, and finally, Scott Lake. Nine trainers. The replay, of course, shows nothing of the ugliness. The announcer, of course, says only that Mad Magic “pulled up.” This is horseracing.

  1. This is typical of the ugly claiming game. Mad Magic was shuffled from barn to barn and run to her death.
    All these different trainers and handlers as she descended in the claiming ranks must have been so very stressful for the poor mare. These people remind me of parasites.
