D Emcee, July 12, training – “fractured sesamoid necessitating euthanasia.” D Emcee was three years old and had been raced 8 times.
She’sakittykat, July 12 – “laminitis.” She’sakittykat was five years old and had been raced 24 times, most recently in a claiming (the cheapest kind) at Parx in May. In other words, make no mistake, Racing gave her (painful) laminitis; Racing killed her.
This is horseracing.
