Two Standardbreds are dead in NY:

10-year-old Tug River Dylan “collapsed and died on the track” (Gaming Commission) after the 1st race Sunday afternoon at Saratoga Raceway. “Possible cardiac event,” they’re calling it. Trainer, Normand Dessureault; driver, Stephane Bouchard.

12-year-old Hypnotist went down in the 3rd last Thursday night at Yonkers. All the Commission has to say on this one is the ever laughable “investigation continues.” Trainer, Kimberly Asher; driver, Larry Stalbaum.
