From the NYS Gaming Commission: At Saratoga, 3-year-old Midnight Visitor “reared up while being walked to Assembly Barn and fell…removed to Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital where it [was] euthanized this morning [Thursday].” The “it” was slated to be raced in that day’s 4th. She is the ninth dead “athlete” at Saratoga this year.

This is horseracing.
