Thank you for letting us know;  I did not hear any updates on TVG about Snake Doctor or Santana.  I looked up the horse's breeding and his dam Rare Event produced Improbable.  I feel so bad for Sisterson and Calumet.  Just a two year old....

I always look to DRF twitter for updates since you only hear updated when it’s a stakes race or Breeder’s Cup. The sad thing is most likely a true miss step  and their fragile legs can’t handle the stress:(

My heart breaks whenever I hear about a breakdown and euthanization.  A horse broke down and was euthanized at Golden Gate today: i read there have been 25 fatalities at Golden Gate Since December.

I have decided my love for watching these magnificent animals run around a track is greater than my grief at these breakdowns but still- it is so heartbreaking.
