In a FOIA request to the Nebraska State Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills at Fonner Park thus far this year. Please note, however, that the Commission did not forward any stall deaths, nor were there any deaths (of any kind) reported for the state’s several other tracks. So, this list is surely not complete.
Aquina’s Advice, Feb 28, Fonner R – “racing breakdown left front, after the wire”
Mucho Super Girl, Mar 13, Fonner R – “broke down in stretch on a sloppy track”
Captain Bob, Mar 25, Fonner T – “fractured cannon” (two, being prepped for debut)
Ted W, Apr 2, Fonner T – “RF suspensories, dropped on ground” (10 years old)
