Last Week’s “Vanned,” “Bled”

Horseracing Wrongs

Last week on U.S. Flat (Thoroughbred/Quarterhorse) Tracks:

Quiet Spring “took bad steps, vanned off” at Will Rogers
My Legacy “vanned off the track” at Will Rogers
Lonemire “vanned off” at Remington
Bv Silver Wings “bled” at Remington
Cashmeifucan “vanned off” at Charles Town
Pump Room “went wrong, vanned off” at Gulfstream
One Sweet Candy “bled” at Remington
Aggressive Driver “bled, vanned off” at Ruidoso

“Vanned Off”: exactly how it sounds – the horse was unable to walk off the track on his own and required the “equine ambulance.” While not all of these horses end up dead, most do, as borne out by my year-end FOIA reports.

“Bled/Returned Bleeding From Nostrils”: typically indicates pulmonary hemorrhage.
