Tragedy Strikes at Pimlico Race Course as Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert’s Horse is Euthanized

At Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, a horse trained by Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert was euthanized on the undercard of Saturday's Preakness Stakes. The horse, Havnameltdown, was bumped by another horse during the sixth race, causing him to throw jockey Luis Saez off his back. After being examined, it was determined that the injury to his left front leg was inoperable, and the decision was made to euthanize him. The incident is yet another black eye for the horse racing industry, which will continue to strive for transparency and accountability in order to ensure the safety of horses and jockeys.
