I am of the opinion that owners have a right to keep some things  private about

their horses.  Fans always want more infomation in these situations, but we 

dont have a right to know necessarily.

 In the 2nd race at Belmont an 8 year old gelding was pulled up- he was subsequently euthanized-his name was Playthatfunnymusic.  Of course the people on FS2 never provided a follow up as to what happened to the horse: I found this info at TBC .  Horses like this,  are not well known, and not many people sesem to care or  pay attention to when they break down:  I care and many people do as well. We care when a horse breaks down in a race and I wish those people at FS2 or TVG would provide some kind of follow up: instead they just go merrily on their way like it never happened. But it did happen and I wish to express my condolences to those who love and care for him.

In the 7th at Pimlico, a three year old colt by Chrome was injured and vanned off.  Do not know how badly hurt he was, but wish I could find out.  The east coast sloppy tracks might have been a contributing factor.  The colt's name is Da Chrome --- prayers for his recovery.

 I read at Facebook and TBC that Da Chrome broke both sesamoids and was euthanized. Very sad.

I understand that we wish that the racing commentators would give us an update on horses that are pulled up, etc.

There are many moving parts involved, first they have a schedule to keep jumping from one track to another, interviews, handicap analysis, etc. Which does not give them time to do an update. Second they do not always have boots on the ground (not true with Belmont). Third do the owners/trainer and or track want to announce the outcome on tv. 
All of this comes into play and unfortunately the fans are leaving unsatisfied. But sometimes we must.
 

Within about 30 minutes from the end of the race the chart is usually up on Equibase and that can be checked.
