New Day, Same Story – A Kill at Delta, Another at Belmont (NY’s 107th on the Year)

Yesterday at Delta, this in the 1st (Equibase): “CHARBONNET far back early, advanced outside through the second turn, fell, was euthanized and vanned off.” “Fell, was euthanized” – then “vanned off.” I suppose that would be the only way to remove a 1,000 lb lifeless body. Charbonnet was three; this was his first race.

The NYS Gaming Commission reports that 4-year-old Hyde Park Express is dead after being “struck by [another horse] while breezing” at Belmont Tuesday – euthanized where she lay. New York stands at 107 (confirmed) dead racehorses in 2017. For shame.

  1. As well as the horses that died on the ttracks and in their stalls, I wonder how many died in the slaughterhouses of Canada and Mexico.
    What is the true number of racing’s dead this year ? We will never know exactly.

  2. Someone MUST protect our Racehorses — from Day #1 — All Racehorse lives matter from the lower level claimers to the upper levels — their horrific life of abuse leading up to their day of death, is more or less, sanctioned by the owner/trainer AND the racing commissions — Racehorses are forced to live a life of pain and suffering — FOR WHAT? — for $2 bets — Moreover, the ISW (Interstate Wagering) largely controlled by the HBPA rakes in billions — with this kind of money you can potentially buy any politician, journalist or others which could possibly explain how protected this legitimized cruelty is — IMPORTANT : Not ONE CENT of this money is legally mandated to support aftercare for horses — if only they cared about and respected our magnificent racehorses for their entire lives; if only! — clearly, they don’t give a damn about their profit slaves — just the money, AND they will go to great lengths to protect tin — we want our horses protected — more and more our voices are getting heard in the face of this multibillion dollar industry.
