Three More Dead Racehorses

Power of Eleven, yet another ill-fated 2-year-old, broke down yesterday at Golden Gate Fields and was killed. The colt was ridden by Abel Cedillo, trained by Lloyd Mason, and owned and bred by Mason and Robert Jones.

While “breezing” at Belmont Park on November 23rd, 3-year-old Stonely the Lonely pulled up and was destroyed on-track. Also at Belmont, 3-year-old Flight of Fantasy, who hadn’t raced since May, “suffered a fatal cardiovascular collapse at the 7/8 pole while galloping” on November 26th. Three more dead horses. This is horseracing.

  1. Yes, sadly, this is horseracing. I was talking to a friend of mine a few days ago, and we were discussing the sad state of affairs in regards to this so called “sport”. I asked her if she had ever said a prayer when her children or grandchildren stepped onto the basketball court, soccer field, or baseball diamond when playing sports. Her answer was “NO”! My daughter plays tennis and I never worry about her injuring herself swinging the racket or hitting the tennis ball. However, even years ago when I “tolerated” racing, I always said a prayer that the horses would finish the race in once piece. Yes, I still prayer that all the horses will finish the race in one piece, but now I also pray that racing will eventually go down the tubes. There is a simple solution. Don’t gamble on horseracing and let this so called “sport” die a well deserved death.
