From the NYS Gaming Commission, yesterday:
At Belmont, La Fuerza “fractured humeral galloping on main track, ambulanced to barn – euthanized.” La Fuerza was three years old.
At Saratoga, Misspent Youth “cardiovascular collapse breezing on turf course” – dead. Misspent Youth was five, still growing – “cardiovascular collapse.”
For Belmont and Saratoga, two of the nation’s elite tracks, this makes 22 and 7 dead racehorses this year, respectively (and remember, Belmont resumes racing in September; Saratoga has just begun).
