Atswhatimtalknbout dead


Atswhatimtalknbout, unraced since finishing fourth in the 2003 Kentucky Derby, was euthanized on Wednesday after apparently suffering a major internal injury, trainer Ron Ellis said.

Atswhatimtalknbout, 4, was being treated for a displaced secum at the San Luis Rey Equine Clinic for the last week and was improving when he was stricken, Ellis said. Tests will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

Owned by B. Wayne Hughes, Atswhatimtalknbout won 2 of 6 starts and $209,120.
