The NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed a pair of training kills at Belmont Park:
Monday, Pretty Enuff “suffered a fracture to her right front leg…x-rayed and euthanized.” Pretty Enuff was five and was being prepped for her 36th race.
Thursday, Luz Mimi “suffered a fracture to her right front leg…x-rayed and euthanized.” Luz Mimi was also five; she was being prepped for her 27th race.
Both notifications came with the perfunctory “investigation to follow.” Allow me to save them the time – horseracing kills horses. Full stop.
