Millionreasonswhy Dies at Sagamore Farm

Sagamore Racing’s Millionreasonswhy died the morning of July 1 after a training accident at Sagamore Farm near Glyndon, Md. During a routine workout, she crashed through a rail on the three-quarter-mile training track and died instantly of internal injuries.

Trained by Ignacio Correas IV, Millionreasonswhy (Grand Slam  —In Secure by A.P. Indy) finished in the top three in all of her six starts. She won last year’s Matron Stakes (gr. II) at Belmont Park and this year’s Wide Country Stakes at Laurel Park. She placed in the Adirondack Stakes (gr. II), the Comely Stakes (gr. III), and the Miss Preakness Stakes May 18 in her last start. She complied a career record of 3-2-1 and had earnings of $223,340.

“This is a very emotional day for our team,” said Sagamore Racing general manager Tom Mullikin.

At least she went quickly. R.I.P, pretty girl.
R.I.P. Shame to see such a brilliant runner end her career this way. Only bright side is that she died instantly and wasn't in any type of pain during a recovery process or even having to wait the few minutes it would have taken the vet to euthanize her.
very sad--it's always sad when they die, but so much worse when they die in painful ways
This is such awful news. She was one of my favorite fillies in training and I was looking forward to her next start. A brilliant name, talent and heart and grit. R.I.P wonderful girl. I just wonder why she crashed. Something must of spooked her?
Horrifying. I've seen a horse do that at a NY State County Fair. He lived and was run in another race that same day.
Very sad to hear about this.
