“Fractious,” Then “Rank,” Then “Struck the Rail”

Horseracing Wrongs

Sunday at Saratoga, according to Equibase:

race 2: “FRANKEL AT ASCOT…switched leads twice…before hopping and ducking in sharply just inside the eighth pole through the temporary rail…apprehended by outrider and returned…with visible cuts to her left front leg.”

race 5: “VENUS OYZO a bit fractious in the gate prior to the start, broke out at the start brushing the off side stall and then was corrected before bumping MS BOOMBASTIC, grew rank under restraint into the first turn…was approaching the far turn near the seven-sixteenths and struck the temporary rail….”

Horseracing – good, clean family fun.
