“Vanned Off”: Horse injured and required equine ambulance to get off the track. While not all the “vanned” end up dead, most do, as borne out by our subsequent reporting.

  1. Once in awhile, the “vanned off” might already be dead while being hauled off the racetrack. It’s shockingly cruel and inhumane what is being done to the horses. Horseracing is Animal Cruelty.

    • When we were active participants in racing we saw way to many passed horses hauled of Portland Meadows! So glad to see that track gone! A few owners & even horse players admitted to us that it was a bad track.
