For $2 Bets, America…

Last week on U.S. flat tracks (racing only).

“Vanned Off”: horse unable to walk off the track; while not all end up dead, most do, as borne out by my FOIA reports. “Bled”: indicates pulmonary hemorrhage.

  1. It’s always horrible to know that all these horses have to suffer so much!!!!

    • Not to the creeps in racing. Their lives are only worth what they can run for. How sick is that?

  2. mssm8822,
    Gambling on horses is intertwined with the racing of horses. Pair-mutuel betting is legal but it, among other things, contributed to the deaths of these horses. Stop Government Subsidies to the horse racing industry. Without millions of dollars from our government to fund the purse money of races, there would be fewer races.
