This Jess Can Dash in the 3rd at Prairie yesterday: “stumbled at the start, fell and was vanned off.” Here is what that looked like:
But fret not, said track announcer Bobby Neuman at the race’s conclusion: “Happy to report jockey Brett Birzer is up and walking around after the incident shortly after the start.” The (likely) dead horse – you know the one involved in the “incident”? Not a word. Now, on to the next race! My contempt for these people deepens every day.
