Cairo Memories was euthanized in late November for pleuritis and laminitis. We know this because, and only because, the 3-year-old was a Grade-1-level horse and a big earner ($420K in just 10 races), so all the rags covered it.
Cairo was last raced at Santa Anita in October and subsequently shipped to Kentucky to be sold. Apparently, though, she got sick in flight, and, said trainer Bob Hess (BloodHorse), “a 20-day ordeal” ensued – an extended suffering that almost assuredly would not have happened had Cairo been a cheap claimer. Damn this industry.
