Thus far, at least three horses have died at Los Alamitos this month. According to the CHRB, Eyell Be Back is dead of an injury suffered in the 7th January 10. He was two. Ruby Roundhouse (Jan 1) and Jest Famous (Jan 7) succumbed in their stalls to what the Board is calling “gastrointestinal” issues. They were two and three, respectively.
Having just reported on Santa Anita’s third kill (of the current meet) this morning, we can now make it four. The CHRB says that Buckstopper Kit died on January 7 from an undisclosed cause. Buckstopper was four and had been put to the whip 21 times.
This is horseracing.
