Not quite the coda that Joe Harper and the Del Mar suits had in mind. Honor Award broke down in the 2nd today, closing day, and, the track has just announced (“with heavy hearts”), is dead. (The track also passed along its “deepest sympathies to the Wygods, trainer John Shirreffs and his team”; i.e., to the killers.) Honor Award was just two – a baby – and was under the whip for the very first time.
This is horseracing.
