The NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed that Easy Livin, five, “collapsed on jogging track exercising and died” at Monticello Saturday. Again, she was five years old.
The following day, Ro Bear “died in the barn at Belmont from an apparent impaction colic.” No mention of euthanasia. Imagine that. Ro Bear was six and had been put to the whip 40 times, most recently at that same track in May.
For Monticello and Belmont, this makes 6 and 17 dead racehorses in 2019, respectively.
