The 2nd at Gulfstream yesterday was Awesome Remix’s first ever race – it was also his last. Says the chart: “Awesome Remix was on the lead approaching the first turn when he suffered a catastrophic injury and fell, and was euthanized.” “And was euthanized.” Awesome was four years old. In addition, the chart notes, Tolkien “fell over foe”; while it says he was “escorted off,” I will of course pursue a more definitive status (could be simply that the ambulance, for obvious reasons, wasn’t available).
One other note from yesterday: In the 6th race at Turfway, says the chartwriter, 4-year-old Go Manny Go “[was] hard used to keep up, gave way, and bled through the stretch, eventually being “vanned off.”
This is horseracing.
