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

“Bled”: typically indicates pulmonary hemorrhage

These people involved in racing horses are unscrupulous and demented. Some of the names they give the horses indicate their low-life mentality. If that isn’t bad enough, they kill their horses too!!!! Horseracing needs to be ended!!!!
Too many horses have suffered in the past and are suffering now for these demented people!!!
