And the New York Racing Association killing-machine hums along, unabated. This morning at Belmont, says the Gaming Commission, Hemlock “sustained a displaced condylar & comminuted P1 fractures while breezing – euthanized on track.” Hemlock was three years old and had been raced four times, though, as the Commission points out, his last race came almost a year ago. Trainer, William Mott. This makes 69 dead horses at the three NYRA tracks in 2020. 69. Reform is a ruse; safe racing is a lie.
