Yesterday, says the Gaming Commission, Steadfast Love was euthanized at Belmont – “humeral fracture, muscle atrophy.” Although it didn’t say, I assume this was a training injury. Steadfast was three years old.
The Commission has also belatedly added one to last year’s toll: Gabriela’s Miracle “succumbed to pneumonia” on October 15 after a two-week illness. She was two and had been raced three times. This makes 107 dead horses at NYS tracks in 2021.
