Last Week…

Last week on U.S. flat tracks (racing only):

Speed Alert “fell, DNF” at Colonial
Lady Jean “vanned off” at Delaware
Over Tell “bled” at Indiana
Marrazano “vanned off” at Louisiana
Derby City “vanned off” at Belterra
Janet’s Rocket “distress…vanned off” at Canterbury
Iconic “vanned off” at Thistledown
Danceronthebeach “vanned off” at Canterbury
Big Boots “vanned off in physical distress” at Charles Town
Sway to Go “vanned off” at Arlington
Suprise Cat “vanned off” at Arlington
PRESTONS LADY AA “bled” at Golden Gate
Bellavia “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Launicabellacorona “vanned off” at Ruidoso
Tiz Penney “vanned off” at Ellis
Gemo “bled” at Gulfstream
Keepyourskateson “vanned off” at Pimlico
Say Hello to Heat “vanned off” at Ruidoso

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. Horseracing Mishaps says Marrazano did not make it. There is a video when you type in Marrazano race horse accident

    • Thanks for mentioning the U tube channel. That channel has some very interesting videos showing the callousness of people involved with racing that we have witnessed 1 st hand.We have subscribed!

  2. Too, too painful to read the whole thing to the end.. Organized crime must be nationally decapitated to bring these atrocities to an end. Horseracing crimes will not end as long as punks make money on this hateful practice.. Horseracing keeps enduring because of organized crime interests. It’s a whole ball of wax that has to be eradicated and cleaned-up! Let it die now before there isn’t a horse left to kill for profit and “sport”. These poor animals have been tortured slaves for much, much tong.

  3. No horse should EVER die for these losers. It’s a sin. I wouldn’t shed a single tear for the lazy leeches in this torture chamber. The horses I cry for….NOT the humans.

  4. Pimlico race 3 on Aug 14, Gallant Gold bobbled and went backwards. I can not get any info if he is ok. Same day a horse out in Delmar(race 4) grey horse collapsed from heat. No status on him either. Sorry I don’t know the name. Just gathered from my poking around..someone was complaining about the delay of game due to handling the situation there

  5. Those who race on the Louisiana tracks just keep BOLDLY dumping their spent racehorses into the slaughter pipeline – and true to form, racing’s “authorities” do nothing. Also, a while back, a few racing-employed individuals were going to hold the LA tracks’ feet to the fire and stop the constant flow of their racehorses to kill buyer pens and ultimately to slaughter. They even created a non-profit and claimed they were going to be the savior of LA-bred and LA-raced horses – that the LA trainers and owners would hand their crippled and unwanted over to them. Well, that organization keeps begging for funding from the public AND they haven’t stopped a damn thing.

    Loranger Linda last raced at Evangeline on 7-7-21 for Henry Flugence (T) and Dallas Antoine (O).

    Zumberta last raced at Evangeline on 7-15-21 for Roland Patt, Jr. (T) and Dianne Borel (O).

    Both were just rescued (THANK YOU AGAIN, general public!) from a Texas feedlot.
