Running for Annie broke down in the 1st race at Turf Paradise Jan. 3 and was euthanized. Sounds like neither she nor any of the other horses should have been running on that track. :(

Turf Paradise cancelled after the first race on Tuesday following a spill in the stretch that involved the fatal breakdown of the 3-year-old filly Running for Annie.
Racing had resumed at the Phoenix, Ariz., track after the Jan. 1 and Jan. 2 cards were called off. Equibase listed “track conditions” as the reason for the cancellations. The National Weather Service recorded .20 inches of rain on Jan. 1 in Phoenix.
Running for Annie, an Arizona-bred daughter of Margie's Wildcat, was making her third career start in a $12,500 maiden claiming race to open the day's card and was the 5-2 second choice.
Ridden by Jake Barton, Running for Annie rallied wide into the stretch but had just one horse beaten when she appeared to fracture a foreleg, sending her jockey to the ground heavily. Barton did not suffer any serious injury, according to his agent, Mark Anderson. Running for Annie was euthanized.

It's sad that they aren't better at determining what constitutes unsafe conditions without a horse breaking down first. RIP Running for Annie.

Smart French jumps sire Astarabad dies at 22
ASTARABAD, a French sire who was in good form over the festive period, died last month. The son of Alleged was 22.

A mainstay of Haras de la Croix Sonnet for many years, he was in retirement and had not sired any foals since 2014.

That's a whopping one-fifth of an inch. I guess that's enough rain to cause chaos in Arizona, the way an inch of snow can shut down Alabama. Hasn't Turf Paradise switched dirt races to the turf course on occasion over the years when "downpours" like this have put the main track out of commission?

If it hasn't rained in a good while and then the .20 inch comes down real fast, it can make for problems.

What a tough break. To go through all that he did - and then for the heart to give out. RIP Harry's Son.
