Valerie Buck, who had a set list of Wait A While, Fleet Indian, Rags To Riches and Octave one morning at Saratoga, broke her neck when a filly slipped and fell on the road near the Oklahoma training track in October, 2009. Buck came back. Had another surgery. Came back. Broke her ankle.
Like knowing your name, she knew it was time to go.
