    • I was just thinking that it proves that no one cares or is watching over these horses, and they DON’T get the best care like everyone raves about in racing!
      And the vets sure seem to suck at injections in OK!

  1. How can people look at these lists and not do anything? I just hate this – endless lists of dead horses. So utterly horrible!

  2. Wed at saratoga dreaming of gerry broke down in stakes race u know outcome dead of course also bad spill in 7th outcome of 7th was good

  3. Let’s review a day at the races under the name Saratoga and banner “spa” with good clean family fun to boot. 08/10/2022.
    Race 1 – GREY GIANT vanned-off.
    Race 2 – READYSEEKGO “coaxing from the half mile pole (got the living daylights beat out of him) eased in the stretch barely made it through the race and “bled.” Any normal person would know that this gelding was trying to protect himself at the half-mile pole and instead was beaten to keep going. VILE.
    Race 3 – GENERAL BANKER was “roused” (got incessantly whipped and beaten) almost fell over onto another horse creating a chain reaction where 3 racehorses were involved with this bumping incident.
    Race 6 – BOOK AND CANCEL. “came under coaxing” (while running away from the whip that was beating him) he went “five wide” and “faltered.”
    Race 7 – ON OUR WAY BOYZ “clipped heels and fell.”
    Race 8 – AWESOME GERRY who made over $325,469 for his parasites was killed in action.

    This is just on one day and another thing Saratoga raked in over 11 million in interstate wagering and millions in on-track handle so why in the hell should the state of NY be financially supporting this profitable killing business?
