WHAS (Louisville) reports that 3-year-old Mariano Intheninth “broke its leg and had to be euthanized” in the 6th yesterday at Churchill. WHAS, of course, was not really covering the death of a cheap (still a maiden claimer) horse; what makes this newsworthy is a dinged up jockey who took a precautionary trip to the hospital. By the way, Equibase had Mariano as but “pulled up, vanned off.” The dead horse’s people: Jesus Castanon, Brad Cox, Double Dip Stables, Extern Developments.
