This is how much the horseracing industry cares about its “equine athletes.” Twisted Gratitude, the Gaming Commission says, died at Finger Lakes this morning (or perhaps sometime last night). Here is the “report” in its entirety: “never raced horse, expired in her stall – probable colic unresolved.”
“Probable colic unresolved”? Well did she or did she not have colic? If she did, which seems likely, how could this baby – TG was but two years old – be left unattended to simply “expire in her stall”? Imagine her pain, her suffering – her terror – as she died all alone in her tiny box. These people are vile beyond words.
