"Horse Canute dies on final day to mar Royal Ascot for champion trainer Aidan O'Brien. The Aidan O'Brien-trained Canute started co-favourite for the Golden Gates Stakes but was being pulled up by Ryan Moore when he suffered a fatal injury.
Champion trainer Aidan O’Brien’s week at Royal Ascot ended sadly on Saturday when Canute suffered a fatal injury. O’Brien finished the five days as the leading trainer at the meeting for the 12th time with four wins and seven second places. But his final runner of the fixture was unable to finish the race as Canute broke a hind leg during the Golden Gates Stakes. Canute started the 9-2 co-favourite for the 1m2f handicap but had to be pulled up by Ryan Moore at halfway when he suffered the injury. According to the steward's notice, Moore had sensed something wrong with Canute and had already started to ease his mount out of the race, resulting in three horses suffering minor interference. The three-year-old, who had won once in five races, was attended by vets on the track but the horse could not be saved."
Mom watched and recorded the Saturday races. As the race continued the camera panned back to Canute as his jockey was bringing him to a halt but the camera quickly turned away when it showed Canute's right hind leg dangling. Odd that it looked like it was broken either at the knee or the pelvis.

The highest weight Secretariat ever carried was 126 pounds. Many other handicap warriors of Secretariat’s time carried FAR, FAR more than he did.
As for Secretariat’s much vaunted time in the 1973 Belmont Stakes, it might be of interest that 5-time Horse of the Year (1960–1964) KELSO won the 1964 Washington, DC International, also run at a mile-and-a-half, in 2:23.80. This was against a field of international champions — and he was 7 years old when he did it.
There are champions who accomplished a good deal more, in different ways, than Secretariat.

Twinkle (My Sweet Angel): Bunty If you need housing counseling, call 2-1-1 to be connected with a provider in your area. You've probably already done this or know about it. I hate that you are going through this. I want to do something besides pray to help. I feel so helpless!

Bunty: Tried Indiana Emergency, 211 and Salvation Army. The Salvation Army will see mommy next Tuesday at 2:00 to help her with a bus pass. Because they took so long to get back to her they can be of no help with the rent situation.

Ætheling: Next Tuesday?! 🙀 At the Salvation Army here, anyone could come in off the street to talk. Keep thanking the Lord for leading you to the right place for help and the right place for a job. He knows what you’re going through 🤗
