The NYS Gaming Commission reports that Obsidian Flow was killed (multiple fractures) while training at Saratoga Monday. He was two years old and being prepped for his debut. The day before at Belmont, Ready to Escape was euthanized for colic. He was five and was last put to the whip August 20 at Saratoga.
To date, 53 horses have died at NY tracks this year. Since Jan 1, 2018, 173 of these beautiful, sensitive, intelligent beings have been sacrificed at the three NYRA tracks (Aqueduct, Belmont, Saratoga). Reform is a lie. End horseracing. Now.
