A Kill at Aqueduct

In the 8th at Aqueduct Thursday, Towering Orbit, said the chartwriter, “got pulled up after the finish and was vanned off.” We now know she is dead – euthanized, according to the Gaming Commission, for an undisclosed injury. The news was not all bad, however: The 4-year-old Towering “earned” $480 for her people (including $31-million-earning trainer Saffie Joseph) on her way out the door.

This is horseracing.

  1. The abuse and killing of this innocent victimized horse is more evidence that the horses are disposable gambling objects to these psychopathic horse-killers and that eventually over time, there won’t be enough “disposable, expendable horses” available to fill out the race cards.
