4-year-old Showered is dead after falling in the 1st at Churchill Thursday evening. We know this not from the chart (just “vanned off”), and certainly not through Churchill Downs (its site merely said “Showered fell in the stretch”), but because the human participant – jockey Sophie Doyle – was banged up a bit and the Daily Racing Form felt obliged to pass along that, oh yeah, the horse “had to be euthanized.”

This is horseracing.
