“Returned Bleeding Outwardly”; “Suffered an Apparent Catastrophic Injury” – Two From Last Week

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

Don’t Touch My Man “vanned off” at Remington
Desert Ghost “vanned off” at Zia
Texana “vanned off” at Zia
Reposado “bled, vanned off” at Delta
Beyondelle “fell, DNF” at Finger Lakes
Spin Your Partner “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Gale Winds “vanned off” at Laurel
Maresias “vanned off” at Churchill
Established “returned bleeding outwardly” at Del Mar
Hawaiian Noises “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Kw Sally “vanned off” at Lone Star
On the Clock “returned bleeding from the nostrils” at Mahoning
Can Man Do “found to have bled” at Churchill
Crafty Crusader “vanned off” at Gulfstream
Get N Tipsy “fell, DNF” at Hawthorne
Cadet Captain “suffered an apparent catastrophic injury” at Hawthorne
Tip Ofmy Tongue “bled” at Los Alamitos

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. The horror show produced by the horseracing industry continues…
    These poor horses 😭

  2. Torture Chamber, is what it IS. Cadet Captain was ELEVEN yrs old!!!!!!!!!!! These evil,evil “people”.

  3. Seventeen horses were injured badly enough to make this list when one horse brutalized by this so-called Sport of Kings is one too many!!!!
    The horses are forced to endure every day abuse and torture but in horseracing speak, it’s called “amazing care” by the perpetrators of this torture. This list is only “the tip of the iceberg” in cruel, sadistic, inhumane treatment of racehorses. This is a disgusting industry that needs to be shut down! The organized, routine CRUELTIES TO HORSES of horseracing must be recognized as the criminal activity THAT IT IS!
    Animal abuse is a crime!

    • The basic premise of horseracing is to VIOLATE THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR TRUE HORSEMANSHIP. Therefore, horseracing is INHUMANE TREATMENT OF HORSES and cannot be reformed to be humane treatment of horses. This is why it is a thoroughly corrupt organization everywhere that it exists! This is why the horseracing industry must be cut off from all public funding of any kind.
      The white-collar, horse-abusing, horse-killing, psychopaths want the money, and lots of it, no matter what lies they think they need to tell to deceive people into thinking otherwise. The so-called “Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association” in the various states are all about getting millions and millions of dollars through any kind of government funding! They want to keep their WAGERING ACCOUNT REVENUES UP TO A MINIMUM OF …./ $10 MILLION PER NIGHT AT ONE RACE TRACK as an example. If they don’t have “extra money” for more money for bigger purses and more races, their WAGERING ACCOUNT REVENUES will decrease. So, the white collar horse exploiters keep the lie going that “racing can be reformed” because IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.
      IN THEIR PSYCHOPATHIC MINDS: To hell with the horses because they are mere gambling chips or tools for people to bet on. THE HORSE LIVES AND BREATHES, BREAKS DOWN, DIES. It’s called a “career” for the horses; racing, breeding and dying or being killed one way or another.
