Cancelled racing on Thursday.

Not enough Relaunch offspring available to run.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Today is a huge racing day, but I swear TVG has some clueless intern handling production duties at the studio. We've had parts of commercials breaking into interviews, ad soundtracks running over the running of a race from Gulfstream, and completely missed horses in a "post parade" in the upcoming 2nd at Santa Anita. :? :roll:

LOS ANGELES (CN) – A former partner of a California thoroughbred horse racing company is suing the company for $40 million for a breach of contract, according to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday.

Keith Brackpool, British-American investor, worked for the Stronach Group for five years and says he was promised to be reimbursed a 5 percent buyout for his interest in the company.

Workout incident has shut down the main track at Santa Anita. I didn’t see it, but it involved multiple horses in the backstretch. Track has been shut down for around 20 minutes. One horse walked off, another is still on the ground.

There’s a group of people standing around the fallen horse, like they’re waiting for him to get up. One of the strangest things I’ve seen at the track.

Horse keeps moving his head, and the track workers keep trying to encourage him to get up, but have so far been unsuccessful. Odd scene.

@BH_JBalan

Horse has been down more than an hour now. They’ve rolled him over and appear to be continuing to encourage him occasionally to get to his feet.

Horse was on his chest and appeared to be trying to get up. He’s back on his side now.

Latest update.....

Two and a half hours in and the horse is still down. Being attended to by at least a dozen people.

He’s off the track. Was down on the dirt for about three hours. He was moved while still on his side. Equine ambulance is moving him off the racetrack.

Wow I hope he is ok but sounds like maybe a spinal cord injury which is not good. Please keep us updated. Thanks

Horrible...

The horse who went down today during training was Xten. Trainer Tim Yakteen says the colt is going to be euthanized. They tried to save him because he had neurological function and was moving his limbs while he was on the track. Neurological issues have come up since, however.

21m21 minutes ago
Xten was working in company when a horse in front of the group ducked in toward the rail. Xten and exercise rider Baltazar Contreras were unable to avoid the horse in front of them. Contreras has a fractured knee, according to Yakteen.
