Returning from their long weekend, the good folks at the CHRB had a bit of updating to do. Declared dead:
Urban Dance, Los Alamitos, Friday – “accident, shoulder.” Urban was three years old and being prepped for her debut.
My Panache, Golden Gate, Sunday – “accident, head.” Panache, too, was three and being prepped for her debut.
Desert Fog, Golden Gate, Monday – “accident” in gate prior to race. Desert was five.
Hong Kong Cowboy, Golden Gate, Monday – “took a bad step” (same race as above). HKC was seven, and this was his 54th time under the whip – but second in nine days.
yet-to-be-named 2-year-old, Santa Anita, Tuesday – “stall accident, tibia.”
That’s five fresh kills at California’s “safer” tracks. They’re lying to you, America.
