Hard-knocking gelding with a lot of back class. :(

Very sad...
Jeter, the horse, dead at age 9
Jeter, the popular 9-year-old gelding named after the popular former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, died earlier this week, trainer Ed Barker said Thursday.

Jeter was entered to run Thursday at Aqueduct.

According to Barker, Jeter showed signs of colic on Tuesday morning. A veterinarian who was on the other side of the barn, tried to treat Jeter. According to Barker, the horse reared and fell.

"I personally think he had a heart attack," said Barker, who said a necropsy would be performed.

Jeter started 69 times, winning 8 races with 13 seconds and 14 thirds. He earned $426,049.

"He's going to be missed, I'll tell you that," Barker said. "He was an old war horse."

For a relatively small track, Los Al had a lot a fatalities, especially in the "Other" category. :(
Do those figures include the Quarterhorses who race there?

Evidently, all Cali tracks should look to Ferndale for guidance. I think that’s the one track in CA at which I’ve never attended the races. I’ve been there, just never during the race meet. Attractive venue, too bad it’s such a pain to get to and it runs during Del Mar and Stronach is trying to kill it.

It’s cut off but “other” is non-racing related - accidents in stable, colic.

I was just wondering that- with those short distances and instant speed they need.
