Horse racing is a game of ups and downs. From thrilling victories and championships won, to hard-luck losses and, unfortunately, the occasional unspeakable tragedy.
On Saturday, Eric Guillot experienced both.
After the day's 5th race, Guillot's horse, Sir William Bruce, suffered cardiac collapse and died. In the 10th, Moreno, the pride of his barn, wired the Whitney field and won the richest race of racing's greatest meet.
