The CHRB reports that 2-year-old Nestucka was killed training at Santa Anita Friday – “musculoskeletal” for now. For this track, one of U.S. Racing’s crown jewels and supposedly Exhibit A in industry “reform,” this makes 24 kills on the year.
Also, and belatedly, Comeuppance has been declared dead at Golden Gate Nov 4. No details. He also was but two years old; he was being prepped for his first race.
