Mr. Marvin in the 2nd at Charles Town last night: “MR. MARVIN chased the pace in the three path, showed no response to steady urging from the head of the lane, pulled up short past the wire because of a fatal injury and was euthanized” (Equibase).
“showed no response to steady urging…pulled up…euthanized”: was whipped before dying. Mr. Marvin was eight; ’twas his 14th time under the whip.
In addition on Saturday:
Giant Dilemma “went wrong and was vanned off” at Gulfstream (one source has him dead but I will await further confirmation)
Bobs Gold “was vanned off sore” at Charles Town
Sweet Richter “was injured and had to be vanned off” at Fonner
Gracioso “weakened, pulled up, vanned off” at Golden Gate
Ferarri Lx “fell after wire, bled, vanned” at Remington
Mr Klee “vanned off” at Sunland
My Chinumado “vanned off” at Tampa Bay
Bert’s Baby “raced in unsound fashion, vanned off” at Turf
One day – this is horseracing.
