Jumped Bail’s run in the 2nd yesterday at Thistledown: “JUMPED BAIL was bumped at the start, flashed speed, stopped, was eased to the wire due to a catastrophic injury and was euthanized” (Equibase). The 3-year-old was under the whip for the 7th time. He was also “For Sale” – at the (cheap) used-car price of $5,000 – the day he died.
This is horseracing.
This is sickening!!! May this horse rest in peace. Horses should not be raced at 3 years of age regardless of what the “brilliant horseman” in horseracing say. This is not true horsemanship to do this to any horse. JUMPED BAIL, 3-years-old killed by racing. #Endhorseracing
Reblogged this on Armory of the Revolution.
Gosh, I hope JB’s loving connections enjoyed their 8th place windfall. Maybe those Yoder gals can use that $89 to get themselves some therapy to get over that horror show death they inflicted on their baby. Because it certainly won’t buy them a conscience.
Sad but true.
Wanda, I have always said that, they are running them way too young, let alone they shouldn’t be racing at all. These idiots can’t figure out that the bones of these horses are not fully formed their for they are constantly breaking legs and then have to be euthanized. It’s absolutely horrible that this is still going on, I think because everything that is going on in the world right now they think that they can still get away with this. I keep praying that this will stop! Thank you Patrick for keeping this in the news everyday!
Jacqueline- they KNOW. That’s what makes it even more sinister and just plain pure fucking evil. God will judge these cretans
