According to Equibase, Secreto Primero was “pulled up in distress and vanned off” in the 4th at Turf January 8. He is in fact dead – euthanized, say the stewards, for broken sesamoids. Secreto was seven years old and under the whip for the 41st time.
Indian Brew, on the other hand, apparently finished his race without incident on the 13th. After “walking off,” however, “exam and radiographs found [a] fractured right knee – euthanized.” Indian Brew was two and under the whip for just the 2nd time.
This is horseracing – every day.
