A “Went Wrong” Kill at Gulfstream; From “Winner’s Circle” to Dead at Fair Grounds

Horseracing Wrongs

The 9th at Gulfstream yesterday: “Salambo bumped with Sleeping Giant and checked at the start, went wrong in upper stretch and was pulled up, and had to be euthanized” (Equibase). Salambo was four and under the whip for the 23rd time.

I can also confirm that J Rob, the horse who was whipped – “vigorous urging” – to a “win” at Fair Grounds Thursday then was “vanned off” after the celebratory photos, is indeed dead – fracture, euthanized. To add insult, the 2-year-old was sold immediately prior to being killed. Vile. Horseracing.
