I looked them up on pedigreequery -- Tank Team was from the last crop of Unusual Heat, and the other was a grandson.

Londie Lou just broke down in race 10 at Parx. Watching her try to run on dragging her broken leg behind her makes it harder to watch racing anymore. :cry:

She was a Woodbine girl, and was 3rd in the Ontario Debutante Stakes some years ago. Her only race away from Woodbine was today. A friend of mine followed her closely.

RIP Londie Lou.

Horrific incident at Laurel yesterday, Tuffy’s Way brokedown and fell, another horse was brought down and then Kimberly B hit one of the fallen horses and sustained a catastrophic injury. Both Tuffy’s Way and Kimberly B were euthanized on the track.

At Santa Anita, Derby Treasure brokedown and fell heavily in the stretch yesterday as well.

Just now seeing a Paulick article on a terrible incident this past Monday. :(
Exercise Rider Severely Injured, Two Horses Killed In Head-On Collision At Fair Grounds
An accident during Monday's morning training hours at the Fair Grounds resulted in the death of a pair of Thoroughbred racehorses and severe injuries to one exercise rider, Roderick “Roddy” MacKenzie.
According to various individuals with knowledge of the situation, an unnamed young horse from the barn of Joe Sharp unseated his rider and took off the wrong way around the racetrack. MacKenzie was breezing another horse for trainer Neil Howard and was unable to avoid the loose horse. The ensuing head-on collision resulted in the death of both horses – it was unclear whether the horses were killed instantly or had to be euthanized.
