29 Kills Thus Far in Louisiana – Just on Raceday

Through a FOIA request to the Louisiana State Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills on that state’s tracks thus far this year. Please note, however, that the Commission (as usual) did not forward training or stall deaths. So, obviously, the true toll is greater than the 29 reported below.

    • And, I can’t wrap my head around losers who have stayed in this atrocity for their whole lives, …and yet, this is the ONLY thing they have done for their lives. This is why I only respect Gina! Gina, KNEW to get out. Thank YOU Gina.

      • It’s easier to live off the sweat and pain of animals than it is for them to go out and get a real job. (Not meant for you Gina!) They’re lazy criminals.

  1. This is absolutely Horrific! Where is the news media on this?? God Bess all of those beautiful sweet horses.
