Exaggerator's win at Saturday's Preakness Stakes was overshadowed by the death of two horses at Pimlico Race Course. The horses died in separate incidents before the Triple Crown race even began.
Nine-year-old gelding Homeboykris fell over and died while heading back to the barn after winning the day's first race. Track officials believe the cause of death was a "cardiovascular collapse."
Three races later, 4-year-old filly Pramedya was euthanized on the track after falling and breaking a bone in her front left leg.
