:( That is a horrible way for a race meant to honor a fine racehorse, who died on the track, to end.

Yes and I'm sorry to see GSW Second City end the way, too.

It looked like Resiliency was eased in the Lexington at Keeneland. He appeared to take a bad step approaching the last turn and slowed back through the field. Lost sight of him on camera, but I did catch a glimpse of one of the outriders sprinting back up the stretch. :(

Sadly, according to his facebook page, he was euthanized - per Fletcher Racing.

RIP Big Red Rocket.

That is doubly sad. BRR was a son of Summer Bird out of a Tapit mare...a lovely pedigree. And we lost Summer Bird several years ago, so losing a nice son of his really sucks. :(
