2-year-old filly Chica de La Noche was killed in the 7th race at Louisiana Downs Sunday afternoon. This was her first race under trainer Martin Trejo and owner Ana Alvidrez, having been claimed (bought) for $3,500 in January from Hansel Bray (and trainer Kenneth Weeks). Simple chattel, nothing more, nothing less.
Also, Saturday night at Buffalo Raceway, New York recorded its first harness death of the year when Scottie C broke his leg during the 3rd race and was euthanized. The Standardbred was trained and driven by Jacques Beaudoin. NY’s 2014 Death Toll: 12.
