Aqueduct: Long Con euthanized, My Golden Knight vanned off

Email

 They may need more equine ambulances at NYRA. Following a spill in the fourth race in which Long Con broke down in his right foreleg --- he was euthanized with a right front humoral fracture ---  there was another horse vanned off following the sixth race. My Golden Knight, trained by Bruce Brown, was pulled up after the wire by Eibar Coa and had a splint placed on his left foreleg. He was taken from the track via equine ambulance to be further evaluated.

 It seems like there is a gate scratch or a jockey off at the gate or a bad start or a breakdown everyday at this track.
