Much is being made of California’s lower kill numbers. One of the things that the industry, led by The Stronach Group, is supposedly doing is more surgical repairs. But history says that the equine post-surgery survival rate is very low (think Barbaro). Problem is, the injured who end up being euthanized, with or without surgery, off-site will not, as a rule, show up in public records. The lost dead.

With the above as backdrop, here are 75 horses injured (in the cases of the bleeders: pulmonary hemorrhage) on California tracks since Jan 2020 and who have not been heard from since. It falls to the CHRB to tell us where these horses are.
