The CHRB has just released the names of three more dead racehorses in California:
Thursday, a yet-to-be-named 2 (or 3)-year-old died at Golden Gate – “accident,” they’re calling it.
Saturday, Call Sign Lucky was killed training at Los Alamitos. He was two and had been put to the whip 7 times.
Same day, Velocemente was felled in the 10th race at Golden Gate. No surprise there, as she was a “went wrong” on the chart. Velocemente was also two, and this was her very first time under the whip.
These are victims 21, 22, and 23 on the California racing year.
