  1. STOP!!!!! Close all tracks to racing and practice.
    These horses are dying because they’re drugged and pushed to the max!!!!

  2. Happy Easter to all of Horseracing Wrongs (except, of course, to all the racing creeps who check in here daily to see why their whole anti-sport is spiraling into the toilet — hope y’all are having a really crappy day;)

    Anyway, I ONLY counted four horses vanned off yesterday! Yay! That means, on its surface, U.S. tracks are suddenly appearing “super-safe” for racehorses…
    Oops, but then I remembered the Coronavirus lockdown; turns out that yesterday there were only five tracks running and trying to whip their beloved family members through this pandemic..
    Kind of looks like the horses aren’t so super-safe after all:(

  3. I am delighted that you were able to get information out of Arkansas. Shocked but delighted. I do think there are more than that though. We’ll see what the report says next year. I sent them an email on Friday about 2 horses that broke down. They actually answered the email and said they would visit the crippled horses that night and the next morning. Like that is going to be enough! But they are getting tbe idea that they have to be accountable. Welcome to the 21st century.
