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.

Thank you for letting us know.  Didn't look good on screen but you can never tell.  Am always grateful when we get through a day with no injuries and then Saturday brought several.  This is the first Chrome casualty as far as I know and we will all mourn his loss.  Just a three year old.  My sympathy to those who knew and loved him.

On top of everything I appreciate it that the tv commentators do not say anything because honestly the anti racing groups do not need anymore ammunition to try and end racing for ever.

Singular Sensation broke down in race 9 at Belmont today, chart states she was euthanized on the track. My condolences to her connections.

Too many breakdowns this weekend.  Some may have been exacerbated by the off tracks, just don't know.  Was very relieved to find out that the American Pharoah colt at Pimlico  was eased and walked off earlier today.  It was his first race I believe and suddenly he was nowhere to be seen during the race.

 I know: too many breakdowns this weekend. I did not know about the Pharoah horse. So glad he is okay. It  is so heartbreaking when these innocent animals, who are doing our bidding, lose their lives.

Race #4, colt is American d'Oro by American Pharoah out of an MDO mare.  Hope he will recover quickly and be able to continue on.
