Another Dead Racehorse at Belmont

The NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed the death of Voodoo Magic at Belmont last Monday: “acute colic…euthanized due to poor prognosis.” Voodoo was three days shy of her third birthday; she had yet to be raced.

  1. Stress. This horse should’ve been enjoying some light ring work and pasture turnout. SAD!

  2. Three years old and not raced? Makes me wonder if her “loving connections” didn’t see the speed they wanted during her workouts and decided to do something permanent about it.

    • A three year old is a good surgical candidate. Colic can be treated with surgical intervention. My guess is that the owners didn’t want to spend the money.
