Last evening, I reported on the killing of True Hero at Thistledown. As mentioned, this poor baby never had a chance, finishing a combined 60+ lengths back in his only two races prior to yesterday. While the rational world sees True’s exploiters as complicit in his death, they themselves seek sympathy:
“Devastated,” huh? Despicable is more like it.
In other news, Hymn’s Sylvia was raced Wednesday at Penn – his first race in almost two years. Worse still, he is 12 years old. Shockingly, his abusers have been the same since birth (4/14/10, in case you were wondering): breeder/owner, Lydee Shea; trainer, Timothy Shea. Penn: 717-469-2211; PA Racing Commission: 717-787-5196.
