This for Mach West at Tioga yesterday, in the words of the Gaming Commission: “After running in 10th race, horse returned to paddock, collapsed and deemed expired by [vets].”
“collapsed and deemed expired”
According to the chart, Mach did not finish the race, so clearly something had already started. He was but seven years old.
Then this from Remington yesterday: In addition to some “unruly” and “rank” horses, 4-year-old Game Recognize Game, said the chartwriter, was “extremely hard to load.” “Extremely.” But they “love what they do,” right?
