Decent running daughter of Kantharos, 6yo Yorkiepoo Princess was euthanized on January 3rd, after developing severe laminitis following surgery late last year. She had been mentioned here on TBC quite a few times during her career, which had some fine moments. RIP.

Mare Gladden (Teofilo) was killed today after colliding with a car at the Epsom track.

Apparently at Epsom, in order to get to the training track, they must cross the main road. Gladden got loose at the track and she tried to run back to her stable.

People are calling for more signage to let drivers know they're driving through an area where horses are constantly training and crossing the road.

She is one of the horses I follow and I didn't even know she had surgery and now she is gone? What was the surgery for?
RIP Yorkiepoo Princess

Not sure what the surgery was for - only know that it was performed at the Ruffian Clinic in late November.

In doing some research I found a death report in 2019 for Salty Strike. She was a MGSW and a broodmare at Stonestreet.
