News Story:

A racehorse broke free from its lead pony, unseated its jockey, and raced straight into a bronze statue of  Secretariat at the Belmont Park paddock today.  City-on-Line was a 4 year old chestnut  colt.  The base of the statue was broken, but the statue itself was intact.  The jockey was also unharmed.  The colt was euthanized due to a fractured femur of the left hind leg.
