In the 3rd at Charles Town last night, says Equibase, Weaving You Behind “was pulled up lame approaching the seven sixteenths pole and had to be euthanized on the track.” Just “had to be,” you know. The owner/trainer team of Nancy Camp and Sherry Jackson also had the 4-year-old “For Sale” (cheap: $5,000) prior to, and not for the first time (fifth straight race), mind you. Oh, how they love their horses.
Watch how the jockey, Gerald Almodovar, gives Weaving two hard whacks immediately before he broke down. Tell me again how this qualifies as “sport.”
