Going into last night, here were the 4-year-old filly Kabikeka’s most recent five races:
Aug 16, Delaware: 11+ lengths back
Sep 6, Delaware: 12+ lengths back
Oct 28, Delaware: 10+ lengths back
Nov 12, Laurel: 26+ lengths back
Nov 25, Charles Town: “fell, DNF”
That last one was the race in which Raised Wrong was killed. Here is what I wrote at the time: “This one was particularly horrific as three other horses also went down (all supposedly okay, but we’ll see).” We’ll see, indeed. Last night, in the 1st at Charles Town, Kabikeka “collapsed into the first turn.” She is almost assuredly dead. If so, at least some of the guilty are clear: owner Emeterio Rodriguez, trainer Jesus Rodriguez.
