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. The horror show for these poor horses continues and those who have the power to intervene do NOTHING!!!

  2. KALYPSO, a three-year-old Chestnut Filly, “trained” by Bob Baffert bled at Churchill Downs. I wonder what they will do to her. These people really know how to make themselves despicable. I despise what they do to horses!
