Grade I winner Dance With Fate
was euthanized after sustaining a serious injury July 24 when he bolted and crashed into a fence while on the track at Del Mar prepping for the upcoming San Diego Handicap (gr. II).
According to Del Mar Thoroughbred Club publicity, Dance With Fate was on the track at approximately 5:30 a.m. PDT nearing the far turn when he suddenly bolted to the outside fence and crashed into it, falling hard and losing exercise rider Joe Durant. Durant was taken by ambulance to Scripps La Jolla Hospital with unknown injuries.
The colt was removed from the track by ambulance and returned to trainer Peter Eurton's Del Mar barn where he was attended to by veterinarians for an apparent injury to his right rear leg. But efforts to save the 3-year-old colt were unsuccessful.
