I have confirmed that Steelman Run was euthanized after being “pulled up in distress” in the 7th at Gulfstream Sunday. Steelman was eight; this was his 56th time under the whip. For shame. This also makes four kills in five days at this celebrated Florida track.
Also, the NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed the death of 5-year-old Three Eighty Eight at Belmont Christmas Day – “euthanized due to pneumonia of approximately two weeks duration.” Another sad ending to a sad life.
