  1. That’s a lot of horses forced to run and forced to suffer career-ending injuries and most likely life-ending injuries.
    The members of the California Horse Racing Board may be tight-lipped about disclosing details of what happened to any of these horses, because it doesn’t sound good to say they’re dead or shipped to slaughterhouses even though that is part of the game or as the industry calls it, the sport. Nauseating.

  2. Multiply this by 1000s, as every track in the world has a list like this. Pro horse racing folks would have us believe that the majority of these horses have found a wonderful lives, post-racing, and are either beautiful show ponies or living life in lush pastures. The sad truth is – the majority have most likely made their way to dinner plates in Canada, France, and Korea. This is what broke my heart year after year at the tracks I was at, scrambling to try to find homes that weren’t there for the injured racing cast offs only to have them conveniently disappear before I could secure them a home. Every track has a meat man, and every track knows where the horses disappear to. The threats of losing stalls or being banned are a joke. That is the pathetic reality of the racing world, not the idyllic pastures and successful show horses.

  3. What about Echo Zulu?
    She suffered a biaxial sesamoid injury on 10/13 at Santa Anita training for Breeders Cup and has had surgery but surgeon reports “there’s a long way to go.”
    Think there might be a connection between that and fact she was scratched at gate prior to Belmont race on June 10? Asmussen reported next day she x-rayed clean and was good to go.
    When will these people learn. The horses are trying out to tell them something!
