  1. Well, this week’s list isn’t THAT long…
    (Just imagine how much space it would take up if chartwriters actually reported ALL the kills and van-offs.)

  2. I see this list as only the tip of the proverbial iceberg of horses fatally injured by this industry in one week. I imagine that any chartwriter who reported ALL the horses killed, vanned off or not, by racing, training or in their stalls in this egregiously cruel industry in one week would soon be out of a job for non-compliance to the wishes and demands of their bosses.
