Killed, 2019

The following racehorses were killed at American tracks in 2019. Please note, however, that these are on-site deaths only – the “catastrophically injured” who were euthanized back at the farm or after being acquired by a rescue are not reflected here. Neither, the horses who perished at the over 200 private training facilities strewn across the land. In addition, some states withheld, or claimed they had no records of, training and/or stall deaths. So, this list – over 1,000 strong – could easily and reasonably be doubled, leaving us well in excess of 2,000 dead horses last year.

Furthermore, this list says nothing of the multiple thousands of 2019’s “retired” who were shackled, hung, slashed, bled-out, and butchered in foreign abattoirs. In short, what follows is far from a complete reckoning of horseracing’s carnage.

Finally, while reading, please be mindful that the killing is but a part of the story. There is, also: the pounding of unformed bodies; the cruel, unremitting, solitary confinement; the whipping; the drugging and doping; and, of course, the commodification – collectively, the Horseracing Wrongs. – Patrick Battuello

“unidentified”: Currently, California, Indiana, and Minnesota redact the names of their dead, citing “confidentiality.” Any identifications from those states come via other channels.

“yet-to-be-named”: The horse had not yet been given a name.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. That said, my information is only as good as the information I receive. If it can be proved that a horse appears in error, I will dutifully remove.
