And Another – Belmont Now at 20 Dead Racehorses on the Year

Having just last night reported on another kill at Belmont – yet another. From the Gaming Commission: “With Caution suffered a P1 fx during training; sent to Ruffian for repair; died from complications from anesthesia.” Like Fancy Persuasion, With Caution was two years old. Belmont stands at 20 dead (and counting) on the year. How’s that “demonstrably safer racing” looking now, NYRA? It’s a bad joke, folks.
