Last Week…

Chart notes from U.S. Thoroughbred and Quarterhorse races last week.

Golani Brigade “in distress, euthanized on track” at Finger Lakes
Trinity Titoli “in distress, euthanized on track” at Finger Lakes
O’Brien “bled” at Parx
Free Chickens “vanned off” at Aqueduct
Ever Summer “fell, DNF” at Aqueduct
Tuesday Too “fell, DNF” at Charles Town
Ravens Reflection “vanned off” at Delta
North Caucasus “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Curlin’s Coleen “bled” at Gulfstream
Stormy Lass “collapsed and died after the wire” at Aqueduct
Mariah’s Princess “bled, vanned off” at Churchill
Pcr Flashin the Cash “bled, vanned off” at Turf
Tommys Diamond “vanned off” at Zia
Biondi “vanned off” at Aqueduct
Bobs Blues Man “vanned off” at Del Mar
Declare Mr Perry “vanned off” at Los Alamitos
Too Chatty “bled, vanned off” at Zia

While not all the “vanned off” end up dead, most do, as borne out by our subsequent reporting. “Bled,” “Returned Bleeding From Nostrils”: pulmonary hemorrhage.

  1. Ah yes, the tarps/screens always at the ready and in constant use to hide from the public the sickening suffering of its ‘much loved’ horses breaking down from the stress and cruelty inflicted upon them by the horseracing industry.

  2. Interesting: The official chart for Friday’s Race 5 at Gulfstream was apparently changed after-the-fact. North Caucasus was initially reported as “pulled up and unseated near the quarter pull (sic)…and EUTHANIZED on track.” Now, chart reads he was only “vanned off.”
    Which is it, Stronach Super-Safe Safety Team?
