The Finger Lakes chartwriter says Summer Nitro “appeared in distress” and was “pulled up” in the 4th race yesterday. Nothing else to report. Summer, in fact, was euthanized where she lay – on the track, that is. This, of course, is nothing new for Finger Lakes, which deceives with the best of them. The fatal blow, says the Gaming Commission, was a “severe tendon injury to the rear right limb.” Summer was just three years old. She was also “For Sale” (cheap: $5,000) the day she died.
This is horseracing.
