4-Year-Old “Receives” Fracture at Finger Lakes

4-year-old Wellbehavedman this morning at Finger Lakes, according to the Gaming Commission: “never-raced horse received fx to the right scapula during a.m. training, necessitating euthanasia on the track.” Ah yes, he “received” the fracture. Vile.

    What sense does all of this horrendous abuse of horses make???

    • Wanda, sadly it makes sense when you consider the participants in this Business have no honor, dignity, Kindness, empathy, respect for animals or a conscience.
      I call on everone in the horse racing industry to re examine yourself , your Job and make a change. Please.

      • I understand that the people who abuse, injure and kill horses are possibly getting income from various sources. What kind of a job could the handicapper or track employee get, if he/she was not setting the morning-line odds on racehorses entered in races to be run in future-time…? The moral depravity of abusing horses for a “living” needs to be punished. The tax breaks and the subsidies to this heinous cruelty to horses needs to be stopped, banned.
        It takes a psychopath to take a horse and cause life-ending injuries to the horse. It’s Animal Cruelty and must be recognized and punished as Animal Cruelty.

    • Precisely what I was thinking Rebecca… “receives” a fx just like receiving a gift. Damn Monsters!!

    • Well, they are Kings, after all: “I grant thee…a severed spine. Or a shattered pelvis or shoulder. Or a fractured sesamoid/cannon bone or two. Or a one-way ticket to a Canadian slaughterhouse. For I am Royalty, and I AM HORSE RACING.”

      • The visual on this makes so much sense. You can almost see certain faces wearing the crown and holding that court.
