Through a Wyoming “Sunshine Law” request, I have confirmed the death of 7-year-old First Down Man in the 4th race at Wyoming Downs last June 22. On the charts, First Down Man was merely said to have “clipped heels, vanned off.” While true that the chartwriter may not have known the severity of the injury when submitting his notes, not another word was written on this horse – not on Equibase, not on the WD website, not on the Commission website. Nothing, until now. They deceive and cover up because they have to. This is horseracing.
