Last Week…

Aruma “scratched at gate by vet” at Parx
Acting Wizard “vanned off” at Will Rogers
Bt Gotta Run “bled, vanned off” at Delta
Yukio “apparent distress, vanned off” at Evangeline
Bit Part “apparent distress, vanned off” at Evangeline
Tahkodha Knight “vanned off” at Canterbury

Cj I Aint No Fool “hit rail hard” at Sam Houston

American Sanctuary “vanned off” at Hawthorne
Creative Girl “vanned off” at Monmouth
Victreeous “hit rail, DNF” at Pocatello
Eyesa Jumpin Delight “bled” at Remington

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. Idaho doesn’t need Les Bois Park to abuse and torture horses for racing. There are the county fair racetracks (Pocatello Downs, Sandy Downs, etc.) in southern Idaho where they are still excited about this despicable industry of exploiting horses for racing and torture.
