Excerpt:


Rapacious had completed his morning exercise and was just about to exit the track when he reared, and then reared up high a second time, according to a news release from the track. He lost his balance in the process and fell over on his back. Rapacious was immediately attended to by veterinarians on duty for morning training at Los Alamitos.

After further medical examination and observation, it was reported that Rapacious had been humanely euthanized because of a back injury. Exercise rider Enrique Garcia, who was aboard Rapacious, was uninjured.

This one's just a reminder that.. shit can happen. Sometimes a horse can injure itself, nothing to do with shenanigans by the trainer
