  1. Isn’t Barry Irwin connected to Team Valor ? He always has something to say, so I wonder if he will say anything about the death of this 3 year old colt ?

    R.I.P. Animal Kracker. Your suffering is over.

    • He is, Rose…I believe Irwin started TV with one other person. I checked FB & Twitter and no mention of this DEAD horse. Not fun to tweet about, I imagine…and this gambling industry is all about fun and entertainment.

  2. Twelve (12) horses died unnecessarily in less than 6 months at the Belmont racetrack and Forty-seven (47) horses lost their lives in this one State alone in the same period.
    JUSTIFY THIS New York State Gaming Commission!

    With immature bones far from being properly developed, this young 3 year old colt ANIMAL KRACKER was sacrificed resulting in his death – for what?

    JOSE ORTIZ, THOMAS BUSH, TEAM VALOR INTERNATIONAL, ALBERT FRASSETTO and the New York State Gaming Commission along with your so called “vets”, you well and truly have blood on your hands.
