Lefty Closer Dead at Mahoning, Matter of Truth at Charles Town

I have confirmed the deaths of two broken horses from yesterday:

4-year-old Lefty Closer – trained and owned by Antonio Pizzurro – in the 7th at Mahoning; 6-year-old Matter of Truth – trained by David Walters, owned by Larry Brafman – in the 6th at Charles Town. Another pair of intelligent, sensitive creatures consumed by an archaic gambling business. How very sad.

  1. I remember watching Matter of Truth run at woodbine awhile ago. At first I thought this read Matter of Law,
    as that one ran as well. So many frigin names filed away in memory.
    Just another premature death for both
