The CHRB says that Noisey Burglar died at Los Alamitos Sunday, no other details provided. She was four years old and had been put to the whip 15 times, most recently Jul 23. She becomes the 15th (that we know about) dead horse at Los Al this year.
Also, this from the 2nd at Thistledown yesterday: El Burrito, says the chartwriter, “was unruly in the post parade, fractious in the gate, threw his head when the gate opened, squatted, [and] refused to break.” I would celebrate this as a brave act of rebellion by a fully sentient, naturally autonomous being if only this were enough to get him released from his servitude. But sadly, it probably won’t be, as his exploiters/abusers (Juana and Jacinta Lopez) are likely already eyeing the next race. El Burrito is three years old.
