“The Galloping Grey Ghost”

11/21/2016 — The dark-grey roan Springsteel (1929~1934), “injured in service,” now graces the Memorial (see tab for years 1800 through 2013), never to be forgotten again. His story is told in one of the most touching pieces of photojournalism and tribute to a horse we’ve ever seen: “Of Springsteel and Moving History.” His memory will live on for generations to come.

“Vanned Off”—Dead

11/14/2016 — We’ve noticed more and more visitors from France, which only shows that, while reports about racehorse injuries and fatalities on French tracks are hard to find, the French people appear interested in their horses’ fate. We would appreciate any reports about fatalities in France. Submit via the Suggest a Horse form.

Corona del Inca (ARG)

11/5/2016 — Farewell to the 5-year-old mare Corona del Inca who lost her life from injuries in the Breeder’s Cup Distaff at Santa Anita on November 4, 2016. She suffered irreparable multiple fractures to her right-front leg nearing the stretch, was vanned off, and subsequently euthanized. Condolences to all who were involved in her life. May the remaining horses in Day 2 of the Breeder’s Cup today finish their races safe and sound.
