Through a FOIA request to the Arkansas Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills at Oaklawn Park so far this year. It’s worth noting that since I began doing this (FOIA requests), this is the first time Arkansas has forwarded information; in fact, it is the first time since my initial request in 2014 that they have even responded. I currently have requests pending for the years 2014-2018.
