A Ludicrous Lie

And so, as another young racehorse – Ludicrous – makes his way to the rendering plant, the air becomes fouled with the typical racing response. Writing in the Times Union (Albany) Saturday, Pete Iorizzo had this to say:

“On Travers Day, we saw the best and worst of thoroughbred racing. A few hours after a horse suffered a grotesque injury and died in front of 46,557 fans, the Grade I, $1.25 million stakes race delivered a photo finish and long-shot winner.”

(The “grotesque injury”? “Ludicrous got bumped in the stretch and took a bad step. He threw his rider and, when he came to a stop, revealed a leg bent at an impossible angle. At least one fan said from the apron he could hear the horse’s bone snap. The 2-year-old colt thrashed about for a few moments before the ambulance arrived, and most of us prayed for the inevitable to happen quickly. It did. Behind black curtains that flapped in the afternoon breeze, Ludicrous was euthanized.”)

Iorizzo continues: “Race horses sometimes die. It’s the most painful truth about a sport so many of us love, a game that has brought much joy — not to mention economic gain — to the Spa city.”

And as if seeking reassurance, he turns to Ludicrous’ trainer, Chad Brown:

“…there are not too many businesses that have animals with round-the-clock care. Unfortunately, like every athlete, you take a bad step and you get hurt. It’s a rare thing, thankfully. But there are so many good things that happen to the horses every day. That’s what drives you to come to work — how they’re well-cared for, how happy the horses are. Those are the highlights of being in the sport.”

Iorizzo: “It’s possible to be both horrified by Saturday’s tragedy and a fan of horse racing, because Brown’s moral calculus isn’t unreasonable. The overall well-being of many animals can outweigh the occasional tragedy. And when Brown says he — and other trainers — love and care for their horses, I believe them.”

Still, there is a hint of conflict (hope) in Iorizzo’s words: “What’s most disturbing to me, rather, was how quickly the party went on. After Ludicrous was removed from the course, the on-track announcers never mentioned him — no offering of condolences, no moment of silence, nothing. And by the time V.E. Day was edging Wicked Strong by a nose in the Travers, it seemed just about everyone had forgotten…” (Ludicrous dying – hit “Race Replays,” Saturday, race 4) (and a photo)

Mr. Iorizzo, follow that train of thought to its logical conclusion. Ludicrous, like them all, was but a means to an end, a simple resource. His “tragic death,” save for a line on his owners’ 2014 tax return, has already been forgotten. As for Chad Brown’s response? Specious garbage, per usual. The “Sport of Kings” is no such thing. It’s animal exploitation, inherently cruel and regularly deadly.

  1. Chad and Mr LaPenta weren’t celebrating after the Travers. Tax loss? This horse cost 770k that’s some tax loss. Haven’t posted on this site in a while. I do read the emails everyday. Seems your happy when a horse breaks down. This sport is going to carry on so keep celebrating every breakdown. Such a negative site never have read a positive word. Thanks for your negative words.

    • Ah Mr. Juffet, back for comments on the “elite racing”. I don’t doubt Brown and LaPenta were not celebrating…what a PIA to have to deal with a dead horse, not to mention having to do damage control. Nothing but a big PIA.

      “Seems your (sic) happy when a horse breaks down”?…you know, that is getting a bit old, Mr Juffet. When the racing supporters have nothing else to say about their maimed and dead, they like to claim we just LOVE it when horses suffer and die. That’s just a form of displacement..remove the responsibility from the offending party and attempt to place it with one who bears no responsibility. Reporting the facts/exposing the truth does not equal finding joy in those truths. So Mr. Juffet, do forums that report the ugly realities of horse slaughter, dog fighting, or the horrific treatment of food animals, etc., also find great happiness in doing so? And do those folks celebrate when more abuse is uncovered? That is ridiculous and you know it.

      Of course this is a “negative” site!…if you don’t want to be confronted with the “negatives” of horseracing and want to read only the glossed-over BS amidst the deaths of your “athletes”, you’re best to stick to horseracing publications.

      So while you enjoy your elite racing at “the Spa”, I have to wonder if you look at the horses and question where each one might be someday in the near future. You must know the majority will not retire (and sound, at that) from such a glorious venue, without having to first be unloaded to some cheap track. Yes, I imagine the Saratoga racing fans would rather not clutter their heads with those “negative” thoughts…it’s much more pleasant to ignore the realities. But to stay in the negative vein here, I’ll just mention several racehorses that once raced at Saratoga – Barbara’s Jewel (dead from racing injuries after being discarded), Marchand Volant (dead from racing injuries after being discarded), Posse Cat (currently laboring for 4K at bottom-of-the-barrel track Hazel Park), Sky Lover (injured and being offered as a pasture pet for $500 OBO by his racing owner), More Than a Reason (9 y/o gelding with 100 starts, winner of over 500K, now running for his life at Hazel Park). But of course, all currently enjoying Saratoga’s meet want only to have happy thoughts…so let’s just ignore the facts.

      You enjoy your visits to the track, Mr. Juffet.

    • Mr. Juffet, what, pray tell, are the “positives” in this illustrious game ? You must be thinking of the money and the feeding of egos that come with the big winners. Perhaps you are concentrating on the hoopla and silliness generated by the Kentucky Derby as well as the annual gathering at the Spa ? ! Do you ever think about the horses that are not the big time winners, those that labor in the downward spiral of the claiming game. Those track warriors endure so much as they are shunted around, raced sore, drugged and started with as little as 3 days between races. You know very well the claiming game is the backbone of this industry and it is rife with abuse and suffering for the horse. You also know, Mr. Juffet, claiming is a convenient way for the “elite” to be rid of the under performers as well as the winners that are beginning to slide. And as knowledgeable as you are, you are also aware of the drug culture in this game, all the way from the “legal” to the outlandish. Further, you have to admit the business gives a nod and a wink to the chemists and cheaters. Those “caught” get a meaningless “suspension” and a pittance of a “fine” at most. Even a ban in one state just means you set up shop in another.

      I could go into some detail regarding the negative health effects of the legal/illegal drugging of these athletes starting with the very young pumped up on steroids for the sales and the fact that most Thoroughbreds end their days at the slaughterhouse but it seems you just want to concentrate on the “positives” in this game and that is your prerogative.

    • Mr. Juffet, it seems to me that you, and your racing colleagues, don’t give a damn about the number of horses racing destroys on a regular basis. If you did, then you would DEMAND that racing change. After all, you have a vested interest in racing continuing into the future. Therefore, instead of lying by saying we are “happy” when a horse snaps it’s leg off, tell your buddies in the racing industry that racing horses loaded with drugs, maiming them, racing them with injuries, breaking them down, and sending 60% of the foal crop to slaughter every year is no longer acceptable or are you HAPPY with the way things are currently being done? It seems to me to be the latter. Just to be clear, I despise racing and I continue to applaud its precipitous decline.

  2. “how they’re well-cared for, how happy the horses are.”
    “Race horses sometimes die…..Unfortunately, like every athlete, you take a bad step and you get hurt. It’s a rare thing, thankfully.”

    How about we look at the facts –
    The great majority of racehorses are not well-cared for.
    Did the horses tell this bloke how happy they are? The great majority of racehorses live miserable lives and are 24/7 in a depressed state – they suffer terrible boredom.
    “sometimes die” if they don’t die on the track or in training they die when they’re slaughtered.
    “take a bad step” who are you trying to kid Chad Brown? Human athletes choose to compete in a sport equipped with an informed educated risk – racehorses have no choice.
    A pathetic analogy.
    “a rare thing” the death statistics are indisputable evidence that this is not true.

    Ludicrous’ purchase cost will no doubt be reimbursed with an insurance claim payout.
    The tax benefits encourage people to invest in racehorse ownership.

  3. The truth hurts, David Juffet, not a negative site but an accounting and a witnessing to horses killed in racing. Chad Brown is very much mistaken when he says “…you take a bad step and you get hurt. It’s a rare thing…”. The incomplete 2014 KILLED list includes the names of 259 horses killed on race tracks. 259 dead horses is NOT a rare thing. Denial that anything bad is happening in horse racing is prevalent as is the conscious, deliberate and routine cruelty inflicted on these horses who in the end wind up being just a tax loss? Totally unacceptable! 259 dead horses! It’s only the end of August. How many more horses will be killed in the next 4 more months? Business as usual in the horse racing industry, just another dead horse, just another tax loss…not negative at all, just the truth.
