Exercise rider, Odanis Acuna, riding for Ken McPeek, early this morning, died of head and neck injuries. He was thrown to the track when his mount broke down (euthanized) at Churchill.

Driver to die on the track warming up or qualifying. Seems like it happens more with the backriders.

RIP.  Odanis Acuna
