LACETT | Danzig Moon suffers fatal injury

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – Danzig Moon, who placed fifth at this year's Kentucky Derby, suffered a fatal injury Sunday while competing at the Queen's Plate Trial at Woodbine. 

Reports say Danzig Moon broke his right hind leg and was euthanized after colliding with R U Watchingbud during the race. 

It was Danzig Moon's first race since finishing 6th at the Preakness Stakes. 

Trained by Mark Casse, Danzig Moon was known as “racing's bad boy” because of his tendency to bite.  He had one victory in his eight starts.
