Yesterday in California:
Barbwire killed training at San Luis Rey Downs. This one will sting: The 3-year-old had been raced only five times (most recently at Santa Anita last month), but had amassed over $100K in “earnings.” Pity his “connections.”
Mary’s Great Hope killed training at Golden Gate. She was two and had yet to be raced. For Golden Gate, this makes 26 dead horses on the year. “Reform” is a ruse, “safe racing” a lie. Dead racehorses are inevitable.
