Sunday . . .

• Oh If I Catch You, Albuquerque, “bled, vanned off”

• Running Fauzett, Albuquerque, “bled, vanned off”

• Diamond Street, Belmont, “reported after the race to have bled”

• Templer Glory, Gulfstream, “vanned off”

• Gentlmens Agrement, Gulfstream, “vanned off” after winning “under steady urging”

• Sovereign Knight, Mountaineer, “vanned off”

• Barnstorming, Parx, “vanned off”

• Miles of Magic, Prairie, “vanned off”

• Streakinjess for Lmg, Ruidoso, “vanned”

• Memphis D Nasty, Ruidoso, “vanned”

The state of New Mexico can be particularly proud: Between its two currently active tracks (Albuquerque and Ruidoso), 14 different horses were ambulanced off over the past three days. It’s likely that many – a majority? – of those are dead.
