  1. I’ve read each name and thought about how every one of these horses – from birth – were put on a path of ultimate destruction. So very few will make it out of racing with the potential to live a full, totally sound life. Because in addition to the slaughtered, the fatal breakdowns, the injuries requiring euthanasia, there are those that will live a life shackled by their nagging infirmities. My heart breaks for every one…thank you HW for naming even some of racing casualties.
