2-year-old Chase This Bandit – barely more than a baby – broke down (“tragically,” says the chartwriter) and was euthanized after finishing 2nd in yesterday’s 10th at Belmont. The Linda Rice-trained, John Witte-owned colt was being whip-raced for the second time. His final moments on this Earth can be seen here (the fatal fall is at 1:38). Per usual, not a word on the dying horse from the track announcer, and nary a mention on NYRA’s website. This is horseracing.
