Horse Breaks Down (Dead) in Third Race in Three Weeks

Half Ton of Fun’s “result” in the 7th at Parx yesterday afternoon: “stalked two wide, was injured on the backside, pulled up and euthanized after.” He was six years old, and this was his 48th time under the whip – and third under trainer Patricia Farro in just the past three weeks. Grind ’em up, spit ’em out – this is horseracing.

  1. Rest In Peace, Half Ton Of Fun.

    May the trainer, Patricia Carro, be punished because causing the death of a horse is NOT HORSEMANSHIP!!! Causing the death of a horse is ANIMAL ABUSE OF HORSES!!!!!!!!!

  2. Recently Del Mar closed for a day due to weather. I was very surprised that the responses to the FB news posts were all about ending horse racing for good. Your message is getting out. Keep it up!

  3. That racing bitch didn’t think any more about buying this horse than she did about buying a new pair of socks. I’ll bet if you were to ask her, she wouldn’t even remember his name or what he looked like. Seriously, just disgusting.

    • Rebecca. I totally agree with you. You always manage to hit the nail on the head. Personal note to all..if travelling safe trip.

  4. If all of the people causing the deaths of these horses were in jail where they belong, there would not be enough people left at the track to carry on this shit and horror show of HORSERACING and PARI-MUTUEL BETTING!

  5. Let’s watch that big blob of a so called horse trainer run around a track 3 times in 3 weeks and see if she breaks down after eating her 20th cupcake. Animal cruelty chubby one. You remind me of my pear shaped x boss, not good.

  6. Patrick,
    In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to thank you and your team for your unending dedication to the horses!
