Horse Dies During Pre-Kentucky Derby Workout

Rasberry MissTotal Pro Sports – During a pre-Kentcuky Derby workout today called the ‘Dawn at the Downs,’a 3-year-old filly (Dr. Rap) ran full speed into another horse (Rasberry Miss) that was standing nearby.

Running without a jockey you see “Dr. Rap, ” a 3-year-old colt, slam into “Raspberry Miss.”

Dr. Rap had thrown her jockey and took off down the track, running wildly and then slamming into Rasberry Miss.  The jockey on Rasberry Miss was thrown off the horse and luckily was not seriously hurt.  But unfortunately the collision was so bad for Rasberry Miss, that vets had to euthanize her because the she was suffering from multiple fractures.

Thankfully nobody else was hurt. Video after the jump.
