4-year-old Havana Sunrise, trained and owned by John Salvato, died Saturday at Finger Lakes from a “septic infection to RR Metatarsophalangeal.” Though termed “non-racing,” make no mistake, this young filly is a horseracing casualty. By the way, in her last start on June 21st, Havana Sunrise finished last, “tired.” To date, 13 animal-athletes have perished at Finger Lakes Racetrack in 2014.
