4th Kill Already at Belmont

After 53 kills last year, Belmont Park – a Triple Crown track, I remind – has not slowed a bit in 2021. Yesterday, according to the Gaming Commission, Oh My Papa “suffered injuries while breezing [training] and was euthanized.” He was four years old.

The dead, so far:

Escape, Jan 1, Belmont T (euthanized Jan 3) – “collapsed while breezing”
All Mo, Jan 7, Belmont T – “open distal radial fracture”
Cerretalto, Jan 29, Belmont S – “colic…euthanized due to poor prognosis”
Oh My Papa, Feb 4, Belmont T – “suffered injuries while breezing”

  1. Lock the people up who use live horses as disposable gambling chips!!! Rescue the horses from the barbaric abuse of being exploited to death!!!!
    Enough is enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
