“Draped Across the Back Door of the Stall”

Horseracing Wrongs

In addition to Princess Merida being “vanned off” in the 1st at Gulfstream yesterday, there was this for 3-year-old Emma Rose in the 4th: “EMMA ROSE reared in the grasp of her assistant starter at the break, flipped over backward unseating the rider and winding up draped across the back door of the stall, was extricated and vanned off.”

Again, that’s “reared…flipped over backward…[wound] up draped across the back door of the stall.” Imagine that scene.

I have nothing definitive (on either horse) yet, but Emma’s trainer, Kenny McPeek, tweeted this: “Unfortunately Emma Rose flipped when the starter opened the gate. Hopefully she and Edgard Zayas are ok.🙏🏻”

Vile – to the core.
