In the 1st at Turf yesterday, Skarboni was reported as “fell, vanned off” – which, as all here can attest, usually means dead. And he is. We know for sure because HW supporter Kelly Griffin pressed the track for an update on Skarboni after it had happily tweeted, “Glad to report Shannon Uske is ok after her fall in Race 1.” Turf’s afterthought reply: “We can report Skarboni was put to sleep. Condolences to all.”
“put to sleep”
“condolences to all”
Can these people be any more vile?
