In the 2nd at Canterbury yesterday, Millard’s Comet “suffered a catastrophic injury” and, I can confirm, is dead. She was just three years old.
“And uh, #4 Millard’s Comet has dropped the jockey. … Please hold all tickets, hold all tickets, until the stewards take a peek at exactly what happened. … Rider Luis Negron down on the track…and Canterbury personnel will be aiding him quickly.”
“MW Paddock Report” – “Your source for horse racing in the Heartland!” – sent out these execrable comments via Twitter:
“Condolences” to the owner/trainer; “rough night for the pilots.” The dead horse? Nothing. Not a word. This is horseracing.
