The 5th at Charles Town last night for 4-year-old Mio’s Long Term: “MALETTA…lost his rider while jumping over MIO’S LONG TERM at the eighth pole, while the latter…suffered a fatal injury nearing the eighth pole and was euthanized on the track.” Last week, I reported on similar kills on back-to-back nights at Charles Town. So that makes (at least) three kills at this West Virginia track in a week.
The 4th at Penn last night for 2-year-old Jewel’sindian Girl: “JEWEL’SINDIAN GIRL…suffered a catastrophic injury after a quarter and fell.” ‘Twas just her second race.
This is horseracing. Every. Single. Day.
