J C’s Pride, the 2-year-old colt who set the track record for five
furlongs at Saratoga this past summer, was euthanized earlier this week
due to complications from an infection, trainer Robert Barbara said
According to Barbara, J C’s Pride had developed a salivary gland
infection a couple of weeks ago, which prompted him being sent to the
Mid Atlantic Equine Medical Center in Ringoes, N.J. Barbara said the
infection spread and “something got to his kidney.’’ The horse was
euthanized at Mid Atlantic earlier this week.
“A big blow,’’ Barbara said Friday.
