Through a FOIA request to the Idaho Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kill in 2022. (Note: Idaho’s last remaining commercial track closed in 2016. What’s left are various fairs, which combined had less than 25 days of racing last year.)
Time Freak, Aug 20, Cassia R – “traumatic fetlock fracture/luxation” (two years old)
There are TWO days of Pari-mutuel horseracing scheduled in August of 2023 at the Cassia County Fair and Rodeo in Burley, Idaho.
It is a no-brainer that the colt named TIME FREAK won’t be mentioned in any of the public relations advertising.
The racket of horseracing and its horrible cruelty must end!
