Three “Went Wrongs” (One of Racing’s Favorite Euphemisms) Last Week

Horseracing Wrongs

Last week in U.S. Thoroughbred and Quarterhorse Racing

Flying Around “vanned off” at Mountaineer
Swayze “vanned off” at Turf
Wild Atlantic Way “vanned off” at Turf
Arch Maven “went wrong, vanned off” at Turfway
Rock n’ Candy “in distress, vanned off” at Turfway
Bellamy Bigs “fell to her face, DNF” at Aqueduct
Canadian Sugar “took a bad step, vanned off” at Remington
Tale of Fire “went wrong, vanned off” at Gulfstream
Puriano “vanned off” at Los Alamitos

My Bucket Is Full “bled, vanned off” at Zia
Sea Bee Salute “went wrong, vanned off” at Fair Grounds
Top Dollar “bled” at Golden Gate

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