In the 3rd yesterday at Aqueduct, R B’s the Boss, says the chartwriter, “fell heavily.” Nothing more. In fact, we learn from the Gaming Commission, R B’s was euthanized where he lay. According to our data, he is the 80th kill in NY this year. Complicit: breeder Anchor & Hope Farm, owner/trainer Jose J. Magana, jockey Kendrick Carmouche, and all those who support horseracing in any way – betting, attending, watching, working in, etc.
At Remington yesterday, in addition to Our Lilah being “pulled up while bleeding” and ultimately being “vanned off,” two others had these notes:
“Gospel Hope flipped over behind the gate while loading.” Raced anyway, 18 lengths back.
“Deb’s Blessing was unruly in the paddock.” Raced anyway, 29+ lengths back.
All three of the above are three years old.
This is horseracing.
