I have confirmed the deaths of two horses on back-to-back nights at Charles Town:
3-year-old Helton in the 6th race Wednesday
4-year-old Added Reward in the 8th race Thursday
How, in 21st Century America, do we continue to abide the sacrifice of sentient beings for an archaic gambling game? When will enough be enough?
Please stop betting on horse races. But as importantly, please stop patronizing racinos, for without the mandated subsidies that flow from slot machines to race purses much of American racing would collapse.
