4-year-old Cool Under Fire – ridden by Daniel Centeno, trained by Alejandro Maymo, and owned by Kazdan Racing – is dead after breaking down at Parx yesterday (race 8). The gelding’s notes read like a bad joke: “vied for command well off the rail, battled gamely to the wire.” Oh and in a follow-up sentence: “broke down…humanely euthanized.” Thank goodness we know how he fared – showed and won over $5,000 – before he died.
