Unfortunate news 3yo Chief Barker euthanized after fracturing leg during running of the American Derby on Saturday. #arlington
Very sorry to hear this news. He struggled a bit after arriving in the states. Condolences to his connections.

RIP Chief Barker...

That is sad. One can but wonder what went wrong, maybe started to go wrong before he came stateside. Condolences to Chief Barker's connections, and all his friends and fans.

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.

RIP, Dance with Fate, you stunningly handsome and talented boy. We had so hoped to see you back to racing, to see, in time, your sons and daughters, but fate had other plans. Godspeed, good boy, Godspeed.

I could only find that she was a rider at Emerald, and was about 30 years old. Was she injured?

It was a fitting tribute to him that his son, Big Macher, won a Grade 1 over the weekend.

Too bad Big Macher is a gelding, or he might have been a worthy son to carry on Beau Genius' bloodline.
