Well There Goes My Exacta Box


2On Wednesday at the Belmont Race track during the post parade for the 5th race, City On Line, a 4 year old colt broke away from his lead pony, tossed his rider and then bolted down the tunnel back towards the paddock. Running wildly, the chestnut horse slammed into a statue of Secretariat, irreperably fracturing the femur in his left hind leg. The onhand vet from the NY Horse Racing Association euthanized the horse on the spot.

The impact damaged the base of the statue but it will otherwise be fine.
