How Many of These 51 Florida Horses Are Dead?

Florida, as I’ve relayed, is among the worst recordkeeping states. And now with HISA as an excuse, I believe the commission there isn’t even being made aware of all fatalities. The following 51 horses were ambulanced off Florida’s two tracks, Gulfstream and Tampa Bay, in 2022 and have not been heard from since. How many of these are in fact dead?

  1. I’m going to assume they’re all dead. If not, they suffer from racing injuries that most likely require constant pain-killing medications such as phenylbutazone.
    Some of them may have been forced into a so-called second career as breeding animals.
    Ocala, Florida is the “Horse Capital of the World” and yet these racing industry people are as criminal as criminal can be. They all should be arrested for VIOLATING Animal Welfare Codes.
