Fair Grounds’ 2014 Dead

Through a “Public Records Act” request, I have confirmed the following 14 raceday kills (the Commission did not forward training deaths, so this list is far from complete) at Louisiana’s Fair Grounds in 2014:

  1. Ms. Moss just received a wonderful honor at this hell hole track. It was announced that she was “Owner of the Year”. I wonder if Moss knows about ALL the horses, at her beloved track, that died in the dirt so that she, and her colleagues, could experience the “thrill” of horseracing. No, I don’t think so. I think Moss is totally detached from the atrocities in racing. Perhaps she loves the money, and the accolades, more than the horses. Not surprising, at all!

    For anyone who is unaware of the affect on a horse when injected with the drug Cobalt and would like to know, may I suggest you read the following link –
