Mister Park Euthanized After Race Breakdown

The Korean Racing Journal has reported that Mister Park, Korean Horse Of The Year, Grand Prix Stakes winner, and holder of the Korean record for most consecutive victories, was euthanized this evening after irreparably rupturing ligaments in his ankle during race 5 at Busan Race Park this afternoon.

Mister Park [Ecton Park-Formal Gold (Formal Deal)], who was carrying 63kg, was eased by jockey Narazaki Kosuke while rounding the home turn and appeared to break-down as he was being pulled-up. While initial reports were hopeful that his life could be saved, further examination at the KRA Equine Hospital at the track revealed that the five-year old gelding would not be able to make a recovery sufficient for him to be able to walk again.

Full report to follow.
