Permian put down at Arlington

It's devastating to lose a horse on the track at any time but to lose one so far from home would be even worse.

The Mark Johnston trained Permian was running in the G1 Secretariat Stakes at Arlington when he appeared to be in trouble nearing the line and went down just after the line, dislodging jockey William Buick in the process. Permian, the winner of the Dante and the King Edward VII, had suffered a "catastrophic" injury to the left front cannon bone and had to be put down. Buick was taken to hospital for observation complaining of some back pain, which puts his riding at Hoppergarten on Sunday in doubt.
