Agamemnon was pulled up in race 3 at SA and vanned off,did not look good, appeared to be right front(?).  I haven’t seen any update on him yet.

There seemed to be fewer injuries for a good while and now this happens.  Hoping trainers are being vigilant with all their charges --- the sport does not need this.

Prayers for Agamemnon.

I know, it’s been nice not  seeing breakdowns, but it seems they come in bunches and across different tracks.:(

Here is American d’oro’s workouts, this colt was NOT fit to be racing! Plus a 4 furlong work just 4 days before the race? UGH

Thank you for posting this additional info about American d'Oro.   He deserves better.

Some trainers choose to get their horses fit by racing but this is absolutely unexceptionable IMHO

 Did American D'Oro pass away?  I am not clear about that- As of yesterday I thought he was ok

As far as we know American D’Oro is still alive , I just posted his very weak workout chart and IMHO he was not fit enough to run a credible race over 1 1/16 mile

 Thanks for that info:  it doesn't bode well for this horse if his trainer is putting him in races for which he isn't fit

We lost a wonderful owner. Condolences to his family and friends. Horse racing has lost another icon in the sport.
