Timely News ran today at the Fairgrounds. Somehow she made a bad step, fell and broke her left leg. She had to be put down. Her odds were 2/1 so the handicappers felt she had a good chance of winning the race. She ran third in her previous race.
Sam Breaux sounded very broken hearted when I spoke to him on the phone. Sam and Al and Melody Helms were her owners. I had to turn over my half of her ownership to Sam when Steve passed away because I couldn't afford a training bill. Chris and I decided to just take care of the mares we had at the farm. I will tell her little sister and her mama tomorrow.
