Headline in The Sydney Morning Herald Saturday: “‘Carnage from start to finish’: Jockey hospitalised, horse euthanised.” The euthanized horse was Hot ‘N’ Hazy. What caught my eye – beyond the fact that another racehorse has died in horrific fashion, that is – was this from the write-up: “A hush fell over the crowd as fellow jockeys sprinted to Adkins’ side, fearing the worst for the horseman [who will survive].” The dead animal? Nothing, not even a perfunctory moment of silence. Indeed, the remaining eight races went off as if nothing at all had happened. Vile, worldwide.
