Three-Horse Crash at Thistledown Leaves at Least One Dead

This happened in the 3rd race at Thistledown yesterday: “Somewhere Up North…fell entering the turn…. Dialin Some Sass struck a fallen rival…. Bionic Rosie fell over a fallen rival…and was euthanized.” Bionic was four years old; she was under the whip for the 21st time. I will update on the other two as information comes in.

And here is what it looked like:

  1. One of the first arguments that racing folks pull out to rationalize the killing of racehorses is that they could die in pasture accidents too.
    My horses have never “hit a fallen rival” or “fell over a fallen rival” in a pasture. Ever.
    I’ve never seen them plow into another horse’s ass end in a pasture, I’ve never seen them crash into each other head on in a pasture . But I’ve see all that and more at the track

  2. Our government must stop all subsidies to this HORROR SHOW of horses being exploited for racing and gambling! Abusing horses for gambling is demoralizing to all.

  3. Here we go again more young horses being killed due to the horse racing industry! This is deplorable! I pray that this will end soon.
