I have confirmed that Lia’s Miracle is dead after breaking down at Mahoning Saturday. She was four years and one day old. The chart reads: “broke down nearing the wire but completed the course.” “Completed the course” – while fatally injured.
This was the filly’s second race under Jason Uelmen and Kala Crampton, having previously been exploited by Steve Asmussen, Mark Casse, Nicholas Gonzalez, Martha Gonzalez, Raymond Pion, Elliot Sullivan, and Catherine Angelo. Used, abused, dead.
