I can confirm that It’s All Up to You is dead after “[going] wrong” in the 3rd at Lone Star Saturday. He was seven years old; ’twas his 26th time under the whip.
Hopehard, also seven, is dead after a fall at the wire in the 8th at Woodbine Sunday. Though Woodbine is in Canada (in fact, that country’s most prestigious track), almost all of Hopehard’s exploitation – 46 of previous 49 races – occurred in the States, most recently at Presque Isle in Pennsylvania.
This is horseracing.
