Belatedly, the NYS Gaming Commission has disclosed the death of 3-year-old He’s a Lucky Devil at Belmont eight days ago: “horse fell at 7/8 pole…causing injury – euthanized on track.” Belmont Park, one of America’s premier racetracks, now counts 36 dead horses on the year – this, after 53 perished there last year. Reform is a ruse, safe racing a lie. Horseracing kills. Period.
Greed cannot be reformed.
Another one? I’m still trying to figure out if Booby Trap (or Bobby trap, if you’re an official, semi-literate Belmont Park Death Reporter) survived the Steeplechase Death Race that also claimed the life of Baltimore Bucko. Anyone?
The chart says BOOBY TRAP finished in second place. However, PERFECT TAPATINO (FR) was a DNF and was apprehended by an outrider and walked off the course under his own power. Nancy and I are curious about whether or not PERFECT TAPATINO is alive or not.
Yes, but the Gaming Commission says Booby Trap was vanned off and euthanized after that race — or, rather, “vaned off and euthaized.” I figured it was just a clerical error on their part, but it’s still up.
Wow, I didn’t see that Kelly. I just didn’t see that at all. Interesting but weird…
I read he was bleeding after the race. Still no word of final outcome.
Stop racing alltogether then killings will stop
