Sherman Bartlebort (2009) a staple in the 4.5F races at Los Alamitos in 2013, made his first start in 18 months and "dropped the rider" while being eased. :( According to the hosts he galloped (or at least made his way) to the backstretch so hopefully it was just a bad stumble.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

At least he's still with us. Maybe time to rethink the comeback bit. :)

I saw something on one of DRF's pages (which I can not find now that I'm trying to find it :roll: ) that she grabbed a quarter. Hopefully, that means a minor injury.

"Grabbed a quarter" is just a hind hoof catching the heel of a front hoof. Very minor in the grand scheme of things.

The announcer said she was in distress so it didn't sound good. The chart says she was vanned off.

Chart actually says she broke down and was vanned, which doesn't sound good at all.

Britney Eurton just came on TVG to say that rider Corey Nakatani had been transported to a hospital. Bilger's Sapphire apparently walked off?
ETA: Bloodhorse has some info...good for the filly, not as good for Corey:

Here is from the Los Al minutes-
"THIRD RACE – ACCIDENT – INQUIRY – NO CHANGE
Following the running of the third race, the Stewards posted the Inquiry sign to review an incident near the 1/16 pole. While racing in the clear, #3 “Sherman Bartlebort” (Jockey O. Santos) stumbled and fell, unseating his rider. As no other horses were involved, the race was declared official. The rider was transported to Los Alamitos General Hospital for observation. The horse was reported to be okay"

Downtown was eased in the 7th at Gulfstream. Only Josie Knows in the 7th at Santa Anita. On Josie, TVG said she was loaded onto the ambulance, but the injury appeared to be significant.

DRF Live:
Santa Anita: Gryder replaces Pereira in Sunday's 9th race

Jockey Aaron Gryder will replace Tiago Pereira on BEST TWO MINUTES (8) in Sunday's ninth race, a maiden race on the hillside turf course.

Pereira has been taken to a local hospital after being unseated in a spill in Sunday's seventh race. Pereira's mount Only Josie Knows broke down, unseating the rider. Only Josie Knows was euthanized, according to track stewards.

Pereira was fitted with a neck brace. He was moving his arms and legs before being placed on an ambulance.

Thanks for the update but certainly not what I wanted to hear. This is why I usually avoid Santa Anita. RIP sweet Josie

On the list as being unsound, looked back and saw that.

5th race at Charlestown was declared a no contest last night- when it appears that My Reward dumped jockey Guillermo Rodriguez coming out of the gate. My Reward ran off, but Guillermo was laying on the ground being attended to. Rest of the field was pulled up on the backside.

Any news on Guillermo or My Reward is appreciated.
