For $2 Bets…

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. Wonder who it will be next week…?
    One thing’s for sure
    Many innocent horses will break down and suffer painfully cruel INHUMANE deaths.
    How utterly unacceptable.

  2. Vile doesn’t even come close to describing this horror show and blood bath for racehorses.
    The Killing Lists are heartbreaking.
    Horse racing is a vile, deeply corrupt business whereby the racehorses pay the ultimate price for stupid gambling bets.
    Every single racehorse, by virtue of their daily abusive business practices, are one step away from being crippled for life or dying.
    The usual and widespread practice of sending a non-performing racehorse (usually due to them crippling it) to the claiming gallows is on display every day.
    These Trainers kill one racehorse then another one is replaced.
    A killing machine turnstile operation is regular operating procedures in this despicable business.
    The most recent example is SUPER DUDE.
    SD a 6 y.o gelding whose made over $300,000 has been claimed by the notorious super killer “Trainer” Linda Rice.
    SD was abused, prior to being claimed, by super killer notorious “Trainer” Rudy Rodriquez.
    These so-called “Trainers” are pathetic losers who are nothing more than life-sucking parasites.
    They have no intentions of looking after SD or taking him away from his hell-hole.
    Rather, their main goal is to dope, run and squeeze every last cent out of him until he either drops dead or gets claimed for yet another round of abuse.
    Demented people supported by an equally sick system designed to exploit the racehorse.

    • Yes, Gina, these people don’t claim horses to improve their lot in life!
      These horses are claimed for one reason and one reason only, they believe they can make money with them. They do not give a damn about the welfare of the horse and will start them as often as they can using the means they deem necessary to get them in the gate and bring in money.
      Then as the horse’s ability declines he will be dropped in class as he is claimed and claimed again until he dies on the track or just disappears!!!
      I despise racing in general and in particular the evil genius of claiming.

  3. If all gambling addicts stopped placing bets on racehorses, the wagering handle would hypothetically be $0. The racing industry depends on not only government subsidies/corporate welfare to fund this cruelty but also the gambling addicts placing bets on racehorses. Gambling is a vice, not a virtue. The wagering handle fuels this barbaric, sadistic cruelty and killing of horses. The horses deserve to be treated humanely. The horses do not deserve to exploited as gambling chips.

  4. I forgot so please remind me…two and three year olds are approximately how old or in what grade compared to human children? It was an excellent analogy and I would like to use it. Thank you!
