The CHRB reports that Navy Queen was killed training at Golden Gate Sunday. She was six and had been put to the whip 28 times. For Golden Gate, this is kill #13 on the year – but fourth in just the past two weeks. As I’ve said, can’t close soon enough.
At Grants Pass yesterday, Queen Breezy, said the chartwriter, “broke down on the second turn.” While this industry phrase is used far less than when I started, make no mistake it almost always means dead. This Queen, too, is (was) six. In this same race, Bete Rouge, four, fell over Queen. No word on her status.
This is horseracing.
