The Racing Kill-Machine doesn’t discriminate – some horses go down after several years and many races (more than a few, no doubt, due to said pounding), others after having just arrived on the scene. Case in point, yesterday (Equibase):

At Thistledown, All Snuffed Up “broke down” (racing-speak for dead) in the 2nd; it was his 62nd time under the whip.

At Tampa Bay, Greatest Lisa was “pulled up and euthanized” in the 2nd; it was her 4th time under the whip.
