Just saw the notice.  Thank goodness for those there to take care of the horses.

Sounds like it was an A/R person who filed a complaint. maybe they will be able to open up again.

Hopefully they can if they follow protocols like Gulfstream.

A 2yr old filly in her first timed work, broke down and was euthanized yesterday.:(. 
RIP Smiling Ali.

This does not help their situation at SA.

SA practicing a new pattern of saddling, what I don’t understand is the horses’ groom has to hand off to a groom employed by SA then handed back to horse groom after the race. How would having a 3rd party groom make things more sanitary and safe at SA????

Another fatality at SA, are there not fatalities elsewhere? Or is no one writing about it at other tracks? RIP Tailback, my condolences to his connections.:(

Other tracks have fatalities but they are targeting SA showing every breakdown because they want to close it forever.
