The NYS Gaming Commission reports that Letmeno, a 4-year-old colt, “developed laminitis post surgery” at Belmont November 24 and was euthanized. While the Commission calls this an “other” (off-track) death, the best guess is that the surgery that led to the laminitis had something to do with a training session in October. In any event, this makes 98 dead horses at NYS tracks this year – which is the exact same amount as last year, one fewer than 2019, and two fewer than 2018. And we still have a whole month to go. The lie of “horseracing reform” on full display, yet again.
