  1. At least the horses are over their misery. May all those monsters die from a horribl3 death. They can’t take the money with them.

  2. Continue putting this information out there — I’m convinced many are not aware of the horrific details of the lives of these magnificent horses — until these specific horse owners go into another line of work, let’s keep up this fight — SOMEONE must be their voice.

  3. LINDA RICE has many racehorses die under her “care.”
    There are no gender barriers when it comes to this vile business and the vile people in it – male or female they are all abusers.
    Like many of them they have direct involvement with the HBPA at some point in their illustrious murderous “career,” which can mean that they are indebted to the HBPA and must fill races when they are called upon and that means sending a horse out that they know is sore, is suffering, and could die.
    TELL YOU WHAT barely 2 years old according to Equibase: “came under coaxing (meaning he was being beaten/whipped to perform because he was slowing down to protect himself) suffered a catastrophic injury …and fell HEAVILY (my caps) to the track and unfortunately had to be euthanized on track.”
    Now there was an eye witness who submitted a comment on the Bloodhorse (a seasoned veteran exercise rider) claims that it’s the worse thing she ever saw on the track.
    From a groom who posted anonymously on FB: the horse fell so hard that his body was wedged so deep into the dirt that they actually had to dig TELL YOU WHAT out of the dirt, his own blood, and the broken bones shattered into the puddle of vile abyss.
    Can you imagine this?
    I absolutely despise this low life blood sucking parasite LINDA RICE – SHAME ON YOU!
    You are a despicable human being that should suffer greatly just like all the racehorses whom you intentionally, deliberately, and knowingly harm.
    Linda Rice should be banned from being around any horse or any animal because they are much too smart and too loving to be in the hands of this vile monster, and ugly piece of lip injected crap.

  4. True to industry form we have yet another investigation into all the deaths of racehorses in Kentucky.
    It’s like these apologists sound surprised at all the rash of deaths, which goes to show you how stupid, ridiculous or otherwise delusional these people are.
    The American racehorse is a walking dope and lameness profit factory, and has been for years.
    Add into the mix the masking of serious ailments to keep the horse going, to fill races, to pick-up checks and it only exacerbates the problems just as Lasix and shock wave therapy does.
    I can rewind this article to the 70’s and it’s exactly the same thing only the bad actors have different names.
    At least in this article they are not blaming the track surface, but to deliberately, and consistently avoid implementing meaningful changes for racehorses clearly shows what this vile business and the vile people in it are all about and it’s not the racehorses.
    They can speak out of their vile injected mouths, but they are all the same.
    Like Patrick has always reminded us: DYING IS INHERENT IN HORSE RACING and it’s got to go!
    It has not place in the 21st century – none.
