From the Delaware Park Stewards’ Reports:
Jul 17: “Fifteen Royals fell past the wire of an apparent heat stroke. Track vets and the outrider arrived quickly…putting water on the stricken horse. Jockeys contacted the Stewards about the extreme heat, management was contacted. After further consideration the remainder of today’s program has been cancelled.”
So – it took the jockeys complaining about the heat – not the “stricken horse” who fell from “an apparent heat stroke” – to get the rest of the day’s races called. The temp, by the way, was hovering around 93 degrees.
Jul 24: “Divine Interventio broke down at the 3/16 pole. Horse was vanned off with a serious leg injury. The claim was not voided by DTRC Rule 13.12.3 [because] a horse has to die or [be] euthanized on the track for the claim to be voided.”
While I won’t know the definitive status of Divine until my FOIA comes in, it’s a good bet (“broke down,” “serious leg injury”) he’s dead. But tough luck for the buyer, huh?
