Dylans Wild Cat died Thursday while training at Santa Anita, no other details as yet. Dylans was three years old and had been under the whip eight times.
Then this from Charles Town yesterday. According to the chart, Ruby Lee “pulled up sore and was vanned off” after “winning” the 1st race (and almost $8,000 for owner/trainer John Carlisle). The video (you need to watch till the end) shows Ruby’s lameness after the wire and the jockey, Javier Rivera, inexplicably walking her in a circle. Oh, and there were the atrocious – “sloppy,” said the chart – track conditions.
