The 8th today at Santa Anita, as relayed by the Equibase chartwriter: “Emtech broke slowly, stalked a bit off the rail, was between horses in upper stretch, took a bad step and suffered a catastrophic injury in front and fell nearing the eighth pole and was vanned off.” In fact, I have confirmed (CHRB), Emtech is dead. He was three years old.
There are no more excuses. If you were there today, if you continue to support this vile industry, you are complicit in this and every death going forward. Full stop.
