Flava’s Dream in the 5th at Charles Town last night, in the pithy wording of the chartwriter: “Flava’s Dream suffered a fatal injury into the first turn and had to be euthanized on the track.” Flava’s was five, and this was her 45th time under the whip. Her final exploiter, Joseph Woodit, also had her “For Sale” (cheap: $5,000) the day she died.
Also, word comes that Nickel Nickel Nine perished at Santa Anita Thursday, no details (of course) from the CHRB. He was also five. He becomes the 21st kill at SA this year, and the 70th at all Cal tracks. Yes, definitely safer.
