Blue Grass winner Dance With Fate euthanized (The Associated Press)
Blue Grass Stakes winner Dance With Fate has been euthanized after the colt severely injured his leg in a training accident.

Racehorse owned by Britain's queen fails dope test (The Associated Press)
A racehorse owned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II that won the prestigious Gold Cup at Royal Ascot last year has tested positive for the banned painkiller, morphine. On Tuesday, the queen's bloodstock and racing adviser, John Warren, said that the monarch's five-year-old filly Estimate was one of the five.
