Mr Dejavu, four, was killed training at San Luis Rey Downs Saturday, according to the California Horse Racing Board. He had been put to the whip 12 times, most recently at Turf Paradise last October (a race, by the way, in which he was a “vanned off”).
The Board has also disclosed the death of Up and Ready (probably in his stall) at Los Alamitos Friday. He was two. For Los Al, that’s 5 dead in 10 days, 27 on the year.
This is horseracing.
