Orra Moor Killed at Monmouth; 12 Other Horses “Vanned Off” Yesterday

The 10th at Monmouth yesterday, as relayed by Equibase: “Orra Moor…rallied to a short lead past the eighth pole, then was severely injured near the sixteenth pole…and was euthanized.” ‘Twas the 3-year-old filly’s 6th time under the whip.

In addition, this – all just yesterday:

Tizjohndeersway “vanned off” at Arizona
Parlapiano “vanned off” at Belmont
Curlin’s Prize “in distress, vanned off” at Belterra
Spicey Corona “vanned off” at Delta
Latent River “in distress, vanned off” at Fair Meadows
Cold Brewster “bled, vanned off” at Fair Meadows
Blazer “vanned off in distress” at Fairmount
Hero’s Welcome “fell, vanned off” at Laurel
Time Flies By “fell over the fallen Hero’s Welcome, DNF” at Laurel
Homefield “fell over the fallen Hero’s Welcome, vanned off” at Laurel
Soul Seekin “in distress, vanned off” at Louisiana
Brayden’s Start “fell, DNF” at Parx
Colonel Dax “pulled up lame, vanned off” at Penn
American Proud “appeared to injure herself, fell, vanned off” at Ruidoso

Note: The official Laurel Park “Replay Show” on YouTube completely edited-out the chain-reaction fall that necessitated ambulances for two horses – Hero’s Welcome and Homefield. I will update as information comes in.

  1. Patrick in the monmouth race was the number 10 horse in distress as well
    He was circling way out. On the track and no finish line crossing.

  2. Yet again, some more disturbing, vile, and unacceptable deaths that only the horse racing people are solely responsible for.
    Neither PETA, “radical” animal rights activists or proponents of horse racing have anything to do with their ongoing, massive carnage as they often focus on this instead of themselves.
    We are NOT the ones exploiting and killing racehorses, but we sure as hell will be the ones to protect them and shut this public butcher show down once and for all.
    Once again, tracks owned by THE STRONACH GROUP, headed by daughter Belinda Stronach, has another set of victims on tracks other than Santa Anita.
    This is going on all over the place and no changes implemented at Santa Anita will either prevent the dying or prevent other horses from shipping out to the tracks where they will be able to escape the scrutiny in California that is so long overdue.
    Horse racing KILLS racehorses – end of story.
    This is so vile.
    How in the hell can we accept this or permit it to go on any longer?
    We shouldn’t, we can’t, and we won’t – at least if we are reasonable, logical, and compassionate people.

    • I pray you are successful. I wish this was reported on every week! The public has NO IDEA.

  3. I would imagine many of the horses on this list are dead today. I had read somewhere that the average is 6 dead racehorses on the tracks each day. Yesterday’s carnage certainly backed that statistic up. And it just proves that it certainly isn’t an anomaly, only occurring at Santa Anita. Horses are dying on tracks around the country every day, and these are just the ones we know about.
    Even pro racing people are starting to get fed up with it, but they seem to keep their heads in the sand. I’ve seen many post on pro racing sites that they wonder how many are dying at other tracks. Well, here’s a list. Though not all of them are dead on this list, reading the charts for many don’t give me much hope. “Lost hind end action”, “injured and fell”, those are pretty much indicative of death.

  4. ORRA MOOR – another victim of multiple racehorse doper and killer TODD PLETCHER.
    This time the pattern appears suspicious like some of the others who have died under this killer.
    Purchased for $180,000 (equine insurance policy most likely in place) doesn’t perform or live up to the stake horse that people like this expect when spending this kind of money and winds up DEAD.
    In any other setting, Todd Pletcher would be charged under Felony Animal Cruelty charges and most likely jail.
    Yet, he’s been killing racehorses for years and continues to kill with no transparency or repercussions.
    CORONADO’S QUEST was so abused, so maliciously abused for this morally bankrupt killer and he STILL was not charged, suspended or held accountable.
    This folks is horse racing and we must NOT as a civilized society accept this brutal blood bath.

  5. BRAYDENS START – another victim of multiple racehorse killer PYTHON PATRICIA FARRO.
    This lady has got to be the most heartless piece of shit on this planet.
    She claims horses that have made lots of money, warriors, who were dumped after making hundreds of thousands of dollars, and then she squeezes the life out of them.
    It doesn’t matter about the money, they all count, but to this racehorse killer they are all there to be abused, exploited, maimed, dumped and killed.
    Python Pat – multiple racehorse killer and STILL at it because horse racing doesn’t give a fucking damn.
