In reviewing the charts this morning, the following notes were particularly ominous:
At Santa Anita, “AGAMEMNON…was injured inside the sixteenth pole and vanned off.”
At Golden Gate, “BIG WISH…went wrong crossing the finish line and was vanned off.” (Another horse, Street Dancing, was “vanned off” in this same race.)
Knowing the writing styles at these two tracks, I figured both were dead. And they are, as confirmed by the CHRB.
Dead athletes every day – this is horseracing.
