I found this paragraph from Paulick's article on the FOY...and it may describe the moment Huracan' was injured. My bolding.

As expected, the speedy Three Rules went straight to the front of the field, but Irish War Cry, who set a slow pace in his Holy Bull romp, refused to settle behind that leader and was a bit rank in a tight second position early on. Made You Look and Takaful moved together in the third position, with Lookin for Eight a solid fifth turning into the backstretch. Gunnevera, meanwhile, had been bounced around by Huracan Americo even before the first turn, and was knocked off stride to settle into dead last through the first quarter mile.

As Firehorse put it in the FOY folder, Huracan Americo didn't seem to want to be there and spooked badly in the post parade. There was a pickup parked at the edge of the track near the gates that he clearly had misgivings about, to the point where Edgar had to dismount and let the crew walk the horse.

TVG's Tom Cassidy announced this morning that Sam McKee has passed away. :cry:
The long-time race caller at The Meadowlands and a member of the Communicators Hall of Fame, McKee suffered a major stroke on Feb. 3 and underwent surgery soon after.

I saw a Facebook post from a lady that owned Spanish Chesntut as a riding horse, that he died. He had a diaphragmatic hernia that entrapped his bowel and it couldn't be operated on.

Know More, who broke his maiden on his first try by winning the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes (and it was his only win after that), has died from colic.
I wanna do bad things with you.

RIP Know More. Sounds like he didn't get to enjoy his retirement very long.
