My aged memory at work, I think I was at Hollypark many years ago and early in the card I saw a horse go over the finish line with its front leg snapped in half and dangling. It was awful, just awful. I just turned around and went home, tears in my eyes. Part of the game.

I seem to remember the name of the horse was Hello.

I just confirmed on Equibase, it was an Irish horse named Hello, in the Swaps Stakes, Grade 2, in July 1997, at Hollypark. I'm sure they put him down.

The 2-to-5 winner was Free House, if you're old enough to remember him.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

That's too bad. Just heard Lucky Pulpit, California Chrome's sire pased away from a heart attack in the breeding shed covering his first mare of the season. 16 years old.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!
