Horse Killed, 2 Jockeys Injured

Turf Paradise

Phoenix, AZ – At the Turf Paradise race on Saturday, as hooves thundered around the 1/8th mile mark, Brassy Pete suddenly collapsed on the turf at full speed.  Gochamydear tripped over Brassy Pete and also fell, throwing his jockey.  Brassy Pete was seriously injured in accident and was euthanized.  No word on what specifically caused Brassy Pete’s collapse.  Gotchamydear appeared fine and was led to his stall.

Both jockeys were taken to the hospital, one with neck pain and the other with spinal pain.  They are expected to be OK after recovery.
