Indeed, and does it seems like we are losing a lot more this year to foaling complications?

BTW- in case anyone is looking for an update on STADTPARK- release from pain- from the CHRB steward minutes:

"In the fourth race, the #4 STADTPARK went wrong inside the 3/16 pole. Jockey Iggy Pugisi almost had his mount pulled up and #2 TIZBUDSFORMENLIMO, ridden by jockey Kayla Stra, ran into the hind end of #4 STADTPARK near the 1/16 marker; this unseated Mr. Puglisi. The Paramedics were on scene immediately and transported Mr. Puglisi to First Aid for evaluation by the track physician.
Jockey/Driver condition – After examination by the track physician, Mr. Puglisi was released and
he returned to the jockey quarters.
Horse condition – Vanned off track; evaluated by trainer Aguirre’s practicing veterinarian; euthanized.
Fractured left front sesamoid."

How does this work? If it's found to be Stra's error, does she get days or anything? Or does it get written off to these things happen and who knows whose fault it was?

Ah, in reading the rest of the stewards report, she was given days. Will post that below- should have included that.

From CHRB Steward Minutes:

"05/24/145 RULING – LATS #191 – Refer 5/22/143
Jockey KAYLA STRA, who rode TIZBUDSFORMENLIMO in the
fourth race on May 22, 2014, is suspended for FIVE (5) racing days
(May 30, 31, June 1, 5, and 6, 2014) for violation of California Horse
Racing Board rule #1699 (Riding Rules – careless riding).
The term of suspension shall not prohibit participation in designated races pursuant to California Horse Racing Board rule #1766 (Designated Races).
This ruling was issued after Ms. Stra, accompanied by two supporters, viewed the fourth race from 05/22/14, during which she was the catalyst to a two-horse spill in the stretch. Ms. Stra said that she did not expect jockey Puglisi’s horse to break down and when she realized what was happening it was too late to take evasive action. Prior to Ms. Stra viewing video, the Stewards reviewed the incident and calculated that six and one-half seconds elapsed from the time Puglisi’s mount went wrong until the time Ms. Stra reacted to the situation. Additionally, her mount took thirteen strides and was struck six times with the whip during the time Puglisi was attempting to pull up the injured horse."


I found that last sentence a bit disturbing. From what I have seen of her in the past, this was a surprise.

From Remember Me Rescue:

We are devastated to have to tell you all that one of our RMR alumni, Conquer's Luge aka Luigi was euthanized last night due to an unrecoverable colic. Luigi competed in our first Battle of the X's with Ellen Doughty-Hume. He also competed at this year's All TB Show with his girl Brooke! Prayers and hugs to his mom Dena and his girl Brooke. They are heartbroken

A horse broke down in training at BEL this morning and was euthanized on the track. To the best of my knowledge, a name has not been released.

Sounds like her heart just gave out. Began her career with Tom Albertrani - they had high hopes for her once upon a time...

RIP Lemon Sundae.
