I have confirmed that 6-year-old Ansilta is dead after breaking down in the 8th yesterday at Thistledown. She was trained by Jim Tracy, owned by Raymond Nealy, and bred by Devorah Bishop.

Also, 5-year-old Antone Suavey went down in the 2nd today at Finger Lakes and was euthanized on-track. According to the Gaming Commission, the “investigation continues.” Any guesses on where that will lead? Surely not to trainer Sal Iorio, owner Mark Valentine, or breeder Albert Geldmacher. This is horseracing.
