Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Real Quiet died yesterday after an accident in the paddock of Pennsylvania's Penn Ridge Farm.
The 15-year-old trained by Bob Baffert and owned by Mike Pegram was a nose away from the Triple Crown when he was bested by a driving Victory Gallop in the Belmont Stakes.
