Death at Mountaineer

Mountaineer Racetrack is about as bad as this industry gets. It’s seedy and cheap, and in fact only continues to exist because of massive subsidization. Even the writers and callers are bottom of the barrel. Take last night. In the 3rd, a (what else?) $4K claiming race, Distortedatthebar, says the chart, “took a bad falling being euthanized on the track.” The announcer, for his part, never said a word about it. Not a word…

Distorted was eight; this was his 47th time under the whip. Quite a life, huh?

  1. This is so unfair to the poor horses. Too bad they cannot fight back and protect themselves. Horseracing must end soon!
