Ang called this morning all distraught that Hershey, her number one horse in the race, was pulled today, and will likely miss the rest of the race due to an injury. He was kicked a few times by another horse on the team when they were tied up next to each other… Real sportsman like! That was a joke… The horse probably thought he was moving in on his territory!
Anyway, Ang was sad about it until she called me later today to tell me that 2 horses died on this leg of the race, and 2 riders had to be lifeflighted out! Yikes! Not sure of any details, but I’m sure its nothing really nice to hear.
On a better note: Here is a link to an article about the race. Written before todays accident.
