Another Kill at Finger Lakes – This One a Cheap 9-Year-Old Mare

Bet U Cant Find Me was killed at Finger Lakes this morning – officially (Gaming Commission), “sustained injury to right front leg while training and was vanned off…euthanasia due to poor prognosis.” The Commission adds that the “investigation continues”; I can assure that there is no such thing, for you see, Bet U Cant Find Me was a cheap – “For Sale” at $5,000 in her last race on August 26 – 9-year-old claimer who had been raced 64 times. Translation: She was basically worthless; Racing couldn’t care less that she’s gone.

  1. This makes me sick. All life has value. These people play god. This poor horse was overworked and then treated terribly. This must stop. All of it. these are beautiful loving animals.

  2. Another unnecessary cruel death of a magnificent horse, a NINE (9) year old mare.

    Another useless so-called “investigation” to appear to be looking into it only to satisfy themselves, job done.
    Well no, the job has not been done because it’s too late for her and the public continue to be repulsed by this sickening carnage of innocents.

    • Iā€™m sooooo with you on that one Rebecca šŸ‘ My low-rider chubby rescue Basset Hound brings me so much happiness…Animals Rock!!!! šŸ¶
