Belmont Takes Its Turn


Track officials, vets, owners, trainers, and fans scramble for answers and remedies, to no avail. The mystery is never solved, and the drama continues. And sooner or later all those fatalities will be forgotten as yet another track takes its turn in the media spotlight ... and round and round the carousel goes, ad infinitum.

These phases occur in random cycles, with the top tracks taking the heat of publicity, while obscure tracks operate discretely in the background. We've seen the cycles countless times while researching for the Memorial.

We won't waste our time seeking answers that have been in front of us all along. Logically, we all know the reasons for fatalities and how to end them.
