Yet another colic death from NY. Patriot Lady, the Gaming Commission reports, succumbed to “unresolved colic” Friday at Finger Lakes. She was seven years old and had been put to the whip 34 times, most recently in September. Over her final five races, she finished a combined 83 lengths back for trainer/owner Beverly Wheaton. Oh, and Wheaton also had Patriot “For Sale” before each of those races. As to the cause, for those who are inclined to absolve Racing for colic deaths, see this.
