Last week in U.S. Thoroughbred and Quarterhorse Racing

Half Ton of Fun “injured, pulled up, euthanized” at Parx
Too Deadly “fell late, injured” at Evangeline
The Silent One “in distress, vanned off” at Parx
Munyak “fell, vanned off” at Remington
Stina “vanned off” at Remington
Raise the Gamble “vanned off” at Turf
Clear the Ramp “suffered a catastrophic injury,” dead at Aqueduct
Giant Sandy “in distress” at Finger Lakes – subsequently confirmed dead
Perfections “vanned off” at Mountaineer
Talaalah “vanned off” at Churchill
Friendly Freddy “vanned off” at Remington

Elegant Bay “vanned off” at Churchill
Querencia “vanned off” at Fair Grounds
Redeem Me “struggled to finish and bled” at Penn

“Vanned Off”: many of these horses will resurface on my FOIA kill-reports
“Bled,”“Returned Bleeding From Nostrils”: usually indicates pulmonary hemorrhage
