Two more kills to report for NY. Sunday, 2-year-old Dads Honor, says the Gaming Commission, “sustained LF leg injury while breezing” at Belmont – euthanized on track. Yesterday, in the 8th at Finger Lakes, 4-year-old Cin Cin Cowboy “took a bad step,” breaking both RF sesamoids. Again, euthanized on track. (The chartwriter merely said, “vanned off,” failing to mention that the horse never made it off alive.)
The NYS racing industry, which is being subsidized (at the expense of schoolchildren) to the tune of $250 million a year, has now killed (at least) 35 horses this year.
