  1. Horse racing is a greedy, evil sport. Poor horses are abuses, drugged, and raced sometimes until they drop dead! When they no longer make money foe their owner, they are sent to Mexico to be slaughtered while fully conscious 😞

  2. Patrick,
    I’m curious if necropsy reports are available for maryland through foia requests im curious because I would like to know what happened to SEEKING THE SHERIF he was a horse that I follow…..I would like everyone to look at his pp tells a story of its own look where he came from who his trainer is check the dates and keep in mind the masocistic saga from the breeders cup this horse went from a 12,500 claimer to racing in the breeders cup to ending up at shithole penn national in a optional claiming event where he had a tag on him for 25k to death a month and some days later training for his new’s all for money nothing else
