Last Week’s “Pulled Up In Distress”; “Returned Lame”; “Vanned Off”

Last week…

Siculo “vanned off” at Turf
Credit Cycle “vanned off” at Parx
Chasin Lucas “vanned off” at Turf
Floatie “fell, vanned off” at Fair Grounds
Vinyl “vanned off” at Fair Grounds
Calamity Kat “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Three Birds “pulled up in distress, vanned off” at Turfway
Itsenough “pulled up in distress, vanned off” at Gulfstream
Cryin’ Chuck “vanned off” at Los Alamitos
Not Leaving “returned lame” at Penn
Rockin Ruth “pulled up lame, vanned off” at Penn
Commanding Candy “vanned off” at Sam Houston
Shartle “vanned off” at Turfway
El Potro “vanned off” at Aqueduct
Weekend Madness “eased while appearing to be sore” at Charles Town
Twice Served “returned lame, vanned off” at Laurel

While not all the “vanned” end up dead, most do, as borne out by our year-end FOIA reports. But even if death is not the ultimate result, the above are victims nonetheless, suffering painful injuries – in the case of the bleeders, pulmonary hemorrhage – so that some men may gamble, others chase pots of gold. (For any new confirmed deaths during the week, please see our running annual list.)

    • Your right Carolyn, they are ABUSING the INNOCENT Horses. It is MORALLY wrong, what about that can’t these idiot evil people understand??????????

  1. These horses were born into a dirty business of gambling and CORRUPTION. This abuse needs to be ended. It is never okay to exploit horses or any animal in such a crude and crass way that they have to suffer in pain and distress!!!!!
    I am still wondering what happened to CARAMEL LATTE. There are so many horses that don’t deserve this horrendous fate.
