Unfortunately another. =( http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/85662/intense-holiday-euthanized-due-to-laminitis
SO incredibly tragic. Fractured forelimb – surgery with hopes to make him a breeding stallion – laminitis…ALWAYS a tremendous risk to a horse with another limb compromised.
“It’s a tough day for me, our partners and our team,” stated Jack Wolf, Starlight Racing co-managing partner. “This horse was a fighter and he fought for his life in the same way he battled on the track—with tenacity. It’s a terrible loss for all of us.”
Why did this baby equine have to “battle” on the track? Oh that poor colt. Had to constantly battle – fight for his life – on and off the track. He endured tremendous suffering. For WHAT.
RIP Intense Holiday…
Good question, Joy. Why did this baby have to “battle” on the track? The answer is easy…because his human connections wanted to make money on him. That is horseracing…
SIXTEEN more names…sentient creatures…horses that want to live.
