What do you mean? It was definitely Permian who broke down and was euthanized. William Buick was taken off on a stretcher.

Bloodhorse also reports it as having been Permian.

Ok, my bad. We were on the opposite end of the grandstand and someone behind us said it was Geroux! I did then hear them mention him for the Million so that didn't seem right. Not happy that it was anyone :cry:

So sorry for all the connections and fans of the gutsy and popular Permian. FWIW, there's some speculation (on Twitter) that he may have been injured by a kick from Sonic Boom when he got bumped at the start.

Source says William Buick has fractured T-12 vertabrae. No surgery. Brace. To be kept overnight at hospital. Likely to miss some time.

So sorry to hear this news. I saw him win the Kennedy Road Stakes on my last trip to Woodbine, back in November 2014.

RIP Calgary Cat.
