La Murette a filly by Jazil was found on Sunday morning in her stall. It appears she got cast during the night.

Poor girl. Don't they have night watch men in the barns? Seems a worthwhile arrangement when you have a barn full of pricey horses.

But, a well known operation, if the info on Equibase is up to date.

That was about as ugly as it gets. Freitag went down hard too - have not heard anything about him.

RIP Conquest Calvary.

All I could find was a mention that Freitag (whose last previous race was the 2016 Sir Barton, which he had won) "was vanned home after the accident".

29 horses at a boarding stable died in the Creek Fire near Sylmar, CA. And there are fears that the toll may end up higher as so many people were forced to suddenly flee the huge, fast-moving wildfire. :cry:

Listening to the news this morning, I heard the total is now 40. :(
I don't think I could stand hearing details, so I changed the channel.
