In the 4th at Thistledown yesterday afternoon, “SOROA settled near the inside, suffered a catastrophic injury in upper stretch, fell and was euthanized” (Equibase). Soroa was a 4-year-old filly under the whip for the 10th time.
Soroa suffers her “catastrophic injury” around 1:05 mark…
Later in the evening, in the 6th at Mountaineer, “LIL’L ALLSTAR took a bad step shortly after entering the turn losing the rider, was euthanized on the track.” Lil’l Allstar was a 6-year-old gelding under the whip for the 32nd time.
25 minutes later, at that same track, “LASER LYNN collapsed in upper stretch and was euthanized after the race.” Laser Lynn was a 3-year-old filly under the whip for the 22nd time.
Kill. Kill. Kill. Just one day, just the ones we know about (for now). This is horseracing.
