According to the NYS Gaming Commission, A Freud of Mama “passed” Saturday “after post-op complications from [a] fracture sustained on Belmont training track January 24.” So now these horses are “passing” as opposed to simply dying. Wow. The Commission, of course, filed this under “other” even as it reports the fatal injury occurred on-track. And this, folks, is just one of the ways Racing massages its kill numbers. A Freud of Mama was but two and had been put to the whip six times.
This is horseracing.
