Hall of Fame jockey Victor Espinoza was sent to the hospital this weekend after a horse he was riding died on the track ... and the scene looked brutal.
Victor was hospitalized with multiple injuries Sunday in Del Mar, California after his horse, Bobby Abu Dhabi, went into cardiac arrest while training ahead of multiple scheduled races. The horse's owner, Brian Trump, confirmed the horse had died.
It is with great sadness that I can confirm this morning we lost our boy, BOBBY ABU DHABI to a sudden cardiac arrest on the track. While we are deeply saddened and heartbroken by this loss our thoughts are currently with HOF jockey @VictorEspinoza. Please keep him in your prayers pic.twitter.com/sp30wUqYH7
