“Catastrophic Injury, Euthanized” at Laurel

Gravity’s Rainbow in the 7th at Laurel yesterday: “GRAVITY’S RAINBOW chased the early pace, unseated her rider when sustaining a catastrophic injury entering the backstretch and was euthanized.” Pity the connections (Stuart Grant, Brittany Russell), for Gravity, three, appeared to have a fine “career” brewing, having won her debut – and almost $30,000 – just last month. Oh well, next horse up.

(Curious thing about Maryland: As the FOIA documents become more transparent and detailed, the official “MarylandRacing” YouTube channel continues, almost without fail, to whitewash any video ugliness.)

  1. GR conveniently disappeared from the video replay, however, the announcer made sure to give blow by blow on the status of the jockey.

  2. I assume the racetrack is hoping GRAVITY’S RAINBOW will be more easily forgotten by anyone who hears or reads about this, if they don’t see the video of her catastrophic injury/ breakdown. Business as usual for racing.

  3. Every breakdown should be viewable by all! The betters & the public needs to see what happens to these horses used for their “crooked ,crummy, gamboling game” as was told us in 1986 by a well trained English jockey who we used to gallop horses with on our now redeveloped 5/8 state capitol fairgrounds track.
