2 horses die in first 4 races on Preakness Day undercard

BALTIMORE -- In a tragic start to Preakness day, two horses died at Pimlico Race Course and a jockey broke a collarbone after a spill on a damp, rainy Saturday.

Pramedya broke down around the turn in the fourth race, tumbled to the ground as jockey Daniel Centeno was thrown to the turf. Pimlico racing officials said the 4-year-old filly was euthanized on the track after breaking her left front cannon bone.

Centeno was driven off in ambulance. Officials said he broke his right collarbone.

In the opening race of the day, Homeboykris collapsed and died after winning and having his picture taken in the winner's circle. Track officials believe the 9-year-old gelding suffered cardiovascular collapse.

The horse will be taken to New Bolton Center in Pennsylvania for an autopsy.

Homeboykris won the Champagne Stakes in 2009, and a year later finished 16th in the Kentucky Derby. He had just won his 14th race in 63 career starts.

Later Saturday, Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist takes on 10 rivals in the Preakness Stakes.

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father?
 
This weekend, CSN made its broadcast debut in the world of eSports by hosting one of the regionals in the $100,000 2v2 Universal Open Rocket League tournament and a tremendous storyline emerged as one player’s dad, who had never played Rocket League before, had to sub in and actually scored a goal!
 
Josh “JumpOnStuff” Russo learned last night that his teammate, who he had been training with, could not make it to the event, but he tweeted this morning that he had a surprise replacement.

Little did we know, it would be his dad, who had never played Rocket League before.
 
After struggling initially, Nick Russo, who affectionately was known as Dad throughout the game, backed his way into the ball for the lone goal late in a 4-1 loss in their first game together. When he scored, the viewers went nuts

Despite the loss, this is a moment Nick and his son will never forget.
 
"One of the best father-son experiences I've ever had," Dad said. “"I've done a lot of pretty crazy things in my life and this is definitely one of them."
