Busy Ambulances

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

“Vanned Off”: horse required an ambulance to get off the track; while not all the “vanned” end up dead, most do, as borne out by my FOIA reports

“Bled”: typically indicates pulmonary hemorrhage

    • Speaking of gov’t subsidies: Looks like Parx (one of the kings of stealing taxpayer money and subsidizing their blood sport with it) just had a couple more horror shows in their last two races. But, of course, they’ll never acknowledge the outcome for their equine victims…
      Might make the governor, legislature, and PA public pull back on their generous welfare to horse killers.

      • Kelly, Gov Wolf proposes a budget cutting alot of subsidies to Parx and Penn. To benefit education (heaven knows they need it)
        He seems very reasonable to opinions
        I did mention this to Patrick a couple of months ago. Governor Tom Wolf Harrisburg,PA

      • Some things will be different in 2021, especially starting on January 20, 2021. We will have a competent person as POTUS who will implement an action plan to get the PANDEMIC of COVID-19 under control. I’m hoping that there will be more support of Governor Wolf’s desire to implement his wanted changes of how government subsidies are distributed; who gets the funds and who doesn’t. 🙏🙏🙏

  1. An effective vaccine is what will bring the pandemic under control. Period.
    None of these politicians will do anything that looks like a step toward political suicide and it always involves money and power.
    Watching what people do rather than listening to what they say is always best.

  2. FYI – working to help a horse that’s been featured in a HW post. If you’d like to help with a donation, needed to meet the approximate $2000 in costs to purchase her and transport her to the trusted rescue that has agreed to take her in, it would be much appreciated.

    I will update (including her name) when the money exchange is completed and she’s safe.

    Thank you.
