From the Steward’s Report at Turfway December 30:
“Fire Marshall Bill finished second and required the assistance of the vets and the horse ambulance. After being evaluated, it was determined that the horse had suffered a catastrophic injury to his right foreleg and he was humanely euthanized.”
All was not lost, however, for the 4-year-old Fire “earned” $12,800 for his people – Brittany Vincent, Waylon Cundiff – prior to dying.
This, as ever, is horseracing.
