The Calgary Stampede has received the results of the autopsy on the horse that collapsed. “The left lead horse experienced a ruptured aortic aneurism, leading to sudden internal bleeding and explains why the horse faltered, weakened and then collapsed,” says Dr. Greg Evans, chief veterinarian for the Calgary Stampede.
