Tonto’s Sister Killed at Louisiana

Tonto’s Sister, a 6-year-old mare under the whip for the 37th time, had this chart-line (Equibase) in the 7th last night at Louisiana Downs: “TONTO’S SISTER forced the early pace outside, fell at the five sixteenths mark and was euthanized.”

“Fell…and was euthanized.”

Oh, and she was sold – remember, this is mere property, a thing, we’re talking about here – for $5,000 prior to the race.

Ignore the coming pomp and pageantry at Saratoga and Del Mar. This is horseracing.
