Standardbred owner Mike Timpano has informed Trot Insider that one of his horses had to be euthanized recently after having suffered an injury in a race.
On Friday, February 19, in Race 12 at Buffalo Raceway, Art Of Darkness competed in what would be his final lifetime start.
“After clearing to the front near the five-eighths marker, Art Of Darkness lost his footing on a very ‘sloppy’ track and made a nasty break and shattered his pastern,” Timpano told Trot Insider.
Timpano went on to state that Art Of Darkness was later diagnosed by the track vet who suggested Art Of Darkness be put down.
Art Of Darkness was owned by Mike Timpano and Seaspray Stables, who was also the breeder of the four-year-old Armbro Deuce gelding.
Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Art Of Darkness.
