Last Week…

Sailing for Home “vanned off” at Turf
Positive Force “bled from the nostril” at Parx

Wild Delight “fell, DNF” at Penn
Mozano “pulled up in apparent distress, vanned off” at Tampa Bay

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.)

  1. Racing horses on purpose knowing that these types of injuries are prevalent, common injuries is unthinkable to anyone who values compassion over money! There are other ways to earn a living such as the humans doing the physical labor!!! STOP putting the health and well-being of horses at risk of injury and death. STOP FORCING HORSES TO EARN MONEY FOR YOU!!!! STOP THE ABUSE, BRUTALITY, CRUELTY AND NEGLECT!!!!
