A 2-year-old colt named Sir William Bruce ran his first race this afternoon. He did not survive the day. In the 5th race at Saratoga – “For Thoroughbred Two Year Old” – the Eric Guillot-trained child collapsed after the finish and died. The full notes read: “Sir William Bruce head cocked to the left, was unprepared at the start, came in after the field was sent off and bumped with On Tenterhooks…came back in distress and fell fatally after returning to the paddock.” On a more positive note, Sir William finished 5th and won almost $3,000. This is horseracing.
