Louisiana: 46 Raceday Kills Last Year

Through a FOIA request to the Louisiana State Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills on that state’s tracks in 2020 (this is part 2; part 1 here). Please note, however, that the Commission (as usual) did not forward training or off-track deaths. So, obviously, the true toll is greater than the 46 reported on these pages.

  1. Finally, it has been confirmed what was suspected since December 26, 2020. CARAMEL LATTE was killed because of the injuries she sustained in her last race. This is absolutely sickening!!!!!!!!!!!
    Horseracing must be recognized by law as INSANE & INHUMANE ABUSE OF HORSES and be made illegal for anyone to do this to any horse!!!!!!!!!!

  2. You know…the scumbag tracks are always sayin what a big handle they brought in…well F them, put that “handle” to taking care of the HORSES,and see to it that no HORSE EVER,EVER,EVER goes to slaughter. The scumbags in this torture industry need to get a REAL job. Face it you scumbags.. you are all LAZY. You don’t want to WORK. Sloth and Greed.
