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. Aside from being victims of the usual barbarism inherent to horseracing and Pari-Mutuel gambling bets, some of these horses were forced to gallop FAST carrying weight in extremely high temperatures. In Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, California, Arizona, the drought and triple-digit temperatures were and still are very real. Many people who bet on racehorses would be able to do so while in an air-conditioned room or building. This heinous criminality of ABUSING HORSES FOR MONEY must be punished and DEFUNDED!!!!!!!!! This morally depraved industry of using live horses as gambling chips until they are catastrophically injured and subsequently killed must be recognized by law as the Animal Cruelty that it is!!!!!

  2. The number of horses that suffer on a daily basis – never mind weekly or monthly – is absolutely atrocious. No decent human being who actually cared about the well being of their horse would ever accept for them to bleed from the nose, run lame, or collapse after an event. This is government supported animal abuse on a national scale completely ignored, and at times even sanctioned, by every other animal welfare group in America. Disgusting.

  3. Cruelty beyond comprehension. The facts can’t be disputed. Horse racing must stop!
