The Equibase line on 3-year-old Sweet Yankee yesterday at Louisiana Downs: “was pulled up entering the turn in distress and euthanized.” Dead. Curiously, accounts of her kill are nowhere to be found across the Racing media (let alone the media in general). Hmm. Could it be because this was a $5,500 race at lowly Louisiana Downs? Or because Sweet Yankee was a bottom-of-the-barrel claimer who went off – was “For Sale” – at $5,000 prior to dying? Pathetic, in more ways than one.
