Killed, 2014

The following racehorses were killed on American tracks in 2014. Please note, however, that these are on-site deaths only – the “catastrophically injured” who were euthanized back at the owner’s 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 deaths. So, this list – roughly 1,000 strong – could easily and reasonably be doubled, leaving us with upward of 2,000 kills in 2014.

Furthermore, this list says nothing of the multiple thousands of 2014’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 intense, unremitting, solitary confinement; the whipping; the drugging and doping; and the commodification – collectively, the Horseracing Wrongs. – Patrick Battuello

  1. You left off one…April 27, Santa Anita, first or second race, baby broke down, had to be put down. His name escapes me…will come to me at some point.

  2. June 21, 2014 – San Anita Race 4 – 5f- “Is This Georgia” 2 yr old. Debut race. Vanned off.
    June 25 the horse was worked out 4f, just 4 days later. Worked again on July 2 for 5f, and again on July 7 for 5f.
    July 24, 2014 – Del Mar Race 9 – 5.5f- same horse ran again. I believe the horse finished 3rd in this race. Either the horse was vanned off as a precaution or there is some serious abuse here.

    • This horse was only 2 years old and should never have run so many races back to back like that and at 5 to 5.5 furlongs that young. What were they trying to do break the horse down. There should be regulations at all tracks preventing trainers/owners from being allowed to run such young horses to run 5 to 5.5 f within days between races…
      I’d love to take those trainers/owners out on the track and have them run 5 to 5.5 f within days of each other and see how well they hold up.. it’s just plain cruel in my opinion.

  3. I know about this but I’m still shocked. Thank you for exposing it. I can’t help thinking the way race horses are started so young is partly to blame. They are shod and ridden while they are still growing so how will their bodies cope? Also, the way they are kept confined to stables for much of their day cannot help them as athletes. I have blogged about it myself if you want to take a look on http://www.nakedhorse.wordpress.com.
    Good luck

  4. Almost of the horses who have broken down that I’ve checked so far seem to have the au current fashionable US race breeding–Mr P and ND in vast numbers with quite a bit of Seattle Slew and Deputy Minister.

    If anyone is good at statistics, something useful could probably learned from these lists.

  5. Let’s not forget the ones who live… and to what end? I’ve been keeping a database of my own for a long time. I’ve found horses on the vet list in California running at Emerald Downs, Beulah (look up Fancy Lashes, on the CA vet list as barred, last ran at River Downs, still under Doug O’Neill’s name), TUP, etc. Then there are those who simply fall off the grid. Here is one out of thousands of examples:

    02/06/2014 Trainer William E. Morey. CLAIM VOID. Horse, 4YO colt Very Elusive (15 starts 3-1-2, earnings $67,460) found to be unsound in receiving barn during post-race examination after finishing 4th in a $6.25K CLM, placed on vet list as unsound. This one was imported from Ireland, began its U.S. career with Simon Callaghan, didn’t perform well, slipped down through the ranks and ended up lame, running for a cheap tag in the barn of William Morey… sad story. *REMAINS ON VET LIST AS OF 08/17/2014. Golden Gate.

  6. Also, it’s popular to blame running them as 2YOs and to blame certain bloodlines, but in my 50+ years in the business, that’s not what I’ve personally observed.

    What I’ve seen is a radical shift from barns run by horsemen where the only drugs used were to hop ’em or drop em on race day, and nobody trained on all the drugs which have become the new normal. When steroids and bute hit the scene, it coincided with the rise of the nouveau riche, big-money mega-barns and a core group of trainers crossing over from the QH side of the street.

    Along with all this came a new emphasis on early speed. Trainers stopped running young horses up through conditions and jumped them from MSWs and 2YO ALW races (where they could build the bone needed to have a safe, long career) into stakes company.

    It is no accident that the horses with the longest careers — those without histories of significant layup — are rarely running for the new-money owners or for the glamor-boy trainers with hundreds of head in their barns… I had a mare who made 80 starts, walked off the track as sound as the day she walked on, and became my jumper (bon sang, that girl could jump — knees up to her chin, cracked her back in the air — absolutely spectacular to watch). After her jumper days were over, she worked as a school horse, then as my personal chill pill mare (trail rides and low fences). Sweetie was put down due to infirmities of old age when she was almost 30. Sweetie Pie was heavily line-bred to Native Dancer. Her sire’s sire was Secretariat. She made eight starts as a 2YO…

    IT’S THE TRAINING MEDS, THE LUST FOR EARLY SPEED, THE LACK OF HORSEMANSHIP, AND ABOVE ALL THE LOSS OF HONOR ON THE BACKSIDE WHICH HAS DESTROYED RACING.

    I say this with confidence not because I’m delusional about being the smartest or most experienced horsewoman on earth. I say this with confidence because the statistics back me up and because I’ve been watching (and recording — first in my diary — now in a database) what has been going on since I first went to the track with my daddy as a small girl…

    *Thank you Patrick.* Thank you for tracking these needless tragedies.

    According to my own research (and according to the Texas State Veterinarian), somewhere around 95% of catastrophic injuries are due to a pre-existing condition, either at the site of the new injury or because of overloading on a non-injured limb.

    With the technology we now have (and the low cost of a simple pre-race radiograph of knees and ankles — in the last 20 years, we never sent one to the gate without a few x-rays, x-rays which are a whole lot cheaper than the garbage juice most everyone else trains on), there is no excuse for any of this.

    Keep in mind that I spent my whole life in the horse business. I was galloping racehorses, riding in match races while still in my early teens. Not one time ever did I see a horse suffer a disarticulated ankle, sesamoids ground into dust or any other catastrophic breakdown… much less see a single horse drop dead for no reason (“heart attack” they always say, even though horses do not have heart attacks). This was, of course, before bute hit the scene. I saw horses with soft tissue injuries or a hot ankle get turned out for six months and come back better than ever. I saw horses who obviously couldn’t run become pony horses or pleasure horses or hunters and jumpers. I saw horses who ran hard all summer, got turned out in a herd all winter, then came back to run sound summer after summer after summer…

    What’s happening now is, to my way of thinking, out-right animal cruelty. Yes, there are some good men and women in racing, but the sport itself… the chemical culture on the backside and the bullshit “bad step” excuse from track officials and trainers’ publicity machines… the lies and the secrecy… myself being on the receiving end of some vicious rumors started by a name trainer (rumors generated when his lawyers told him to forget the threats of a lawsuit because his medication records would become mine as part of the discovery process) — rumors designed to discredit me for telling the truth about him (it didn’t work)…

    THANK YOU PATRICK AND ALL WHO CARE.

    • You have a voice of sanity in all this and your comments and observations hold water. This is especially true of the type of owner and lack of horsemanship that pervades racing now. The sport has gone out of it. Racing was the sport of kings for a reason, it is expensive and you cannot cut corners and hurry things up without incurring consequences.

      • You are wrong Stephanie Jones, horses DO NOT have heart attacks. That cause of death for horses is totally misused in racing (big surprise !) Horses do not get coronary artery disease, the precursor, to heart attacks.

        Horses can die from heart failure brought on by drugs such as clenbuterol and even the widely abused drug, Lasix.

      • Stephanie, Rose is correct but just in case you choose not to believe what she has stated here, please Google the NYT article from September, 2012… “At the Track, Racing Economics Collide with Veterinarians’ Oath.” In this article, Jack Van Berg, a well respected racing trainer who recently passed away, states that young horses “are all torn up” when fed muscle-building drugs. He then states that clenbuterol, which is widely used in racing, is “…one of the worst things that happened to racing,” and from the drug’s manufacturer (Boehringer Ingelheim) clenbuterol “should be withdrawn” after 30 days and from Kenneth McKeever, associate director of research at Rutgers Equine Science Center, “Long term, you start pushing a horse into the beginning stages of heart failure.”

        Drugs are widely used in the racing industry in an attempt to keep horses racing rather than to treat soreness and injury through rest and other less aggressive means. If a horse is sound, why does it need all the drugs? Remember…when you mix animals with money, the money will win 98% of the time. The damage that indiscriminate use of drugs does to the horse oftentimes leads to its death. No big surprise, right?

  7. Not gonna hog your message boards, but this is another WTF were they thinking case. Where’s the horsemanship here? When racehorses don’t start until they are four or five, they are at tremendous risk…

    01/04/2014 Trainer Mark Racanelli, owner Steven Glessner. Horse, 5YO mare Sassy Cherokee (14 starts in exactly one year, 0-0-3, earnings $6,620) BROKE DOWN DURING A $4.5K MDN CLM… dead, and for what? The mare did not start until she was a 4YO, 1st race on 01/04/2013 where she finished 9th. She went on to run 6th, 9th, 3rd, 6th, 5th, 8th, 3rd, 6th, 4th, 7th, 3rd, 6th, 4th, 7th, 3rd, 6th, 4th, 7th, 3rd, 6th on 12/26/2014 and finally DNF nine days later without ever having finished better than 3rd. *Steven Glessner owned the mare from her very first start… SAD, SAD, SAD AND CRUEL. (Country Warning was eased from this race, unrelated to the breakdown, and walked off.) Charles Town.

  8. Sorry, one last thing: Salt Block was a 3YO.

    02/06/2014 Trainer Howard Wolfendale. Horse, 3YO gelding Salt Block, broke down during the 4th race, a $40K MDN CLM… EUTHANIZED. This was the gelding’s first and only start. Laurel.

  9. Silver Cloud was a 6YO (not trying to be a pest)…

    02/05/2014 Trainer Jason DaCosta, owner same. Horse, 6YO chestnut gelding Silver Cloud (28 starts 8-8-1, earnings $281,822), broke down soon after the start of the 9th race, a $100K CLM, appears to have gone horribly wrong in the hind end, as if his back end collapsed with injuries to both hind legs… EUTHANIZED. Tampa Bay.

  10. Patrick, may I respectfully suggest that you check the ages of the deceased? I want you to be credible and have found two more errors. Longevity was a 4YO. Trick the Queen was a 5YO. Too many people are ready to attack over this sort of thing…

    01/18/2014 Trainer John Haran, owner Haran Thoroughbreds, breeder John F. Haran. Horse, 4YO Longevity (7 starts 1-0-1, earnings $21,496) broke down during the 3rd race… EUTHANIZED. This was the gelding’s second DNF; on 11/09/2013, he was trailing the field, eased during the stretch while running 12th out of twelve as the longest shot in the field during a $30K ALW and walked off. His next out on 12/22/2013, the gelding ran 7th out of seven in a $50K CLM at Hawthorne. His final start, he went straight to the lead in a $30K CLM and broke down at the ½ pole. Longevity did not start as a 2YO. Made his first start on 07/25/2013 at Arlington (ran 7th). Dead at Oaklawn.

    01/18/2014 Trainer Juan C. Vasquez, owner Rey Wan Racing and Armando Cosme. Horse, 5YO mare Trick the Queen (27 starts 4-4-4, earnings $80,740) broke down during the 5th race, an $8K CLM… EUTHANIZED. This was the mare’s second start in January. Disgraced formal SoCal golden boy Christian Santiago-Reyes in the irons. This mare was hard used. Two starts in March of 2012—two starts in April 2012—two starts in May 2012—three starts in June 2012—two starts in July of 2012, one in August, two in September 2012—followed by A SEVEN-MONTH LAYUP—ran once in April of 2012, once in May, once in June, once in July, twice in August, twice in November (finishing 6th and 7th), once in December 2013 (1st in a $5K CLM), then 5th for $6.25K on 01/02/2014 and finally… dead. Laurel.

  11. For those of you who defend a “sport” that kills horses – horseracing – please take a look at the ages of the horses listed above. Many are 3, 4, and 5 years of age…just babies. Babies that aren’t even fully developed, yet there are those that have the audacity to defend this industry. Racing is declining and is losing 4% of its fan base every year. That is the only bright spot, racing defenders. Racing is declining and it isn’t because the horses are treated well. Perhaps we, who truly care about the horses, are speaking out against the atrocities. Nobody likes their dirty secrets exposed.

  12. I disagree with “vanned off” meaning deceased! I’ve personally seen plenty “vanned off” that were not euthanized! Granted more horses die at the racetrack than there should, but assuming most horses that are vanned of are dead is an erroneous assumption on your part!

  13. thank you for this. i say this sincerely and honestly: you have changed my mind. I grew up in the shadows of the twin spires and have followed horse racing for thirty years. Now i am done. your list is the straw that broke the camels (horses) back. I will no longer support horse racing as a gambler or a fan. Im not going to go all PETA…its just over for me. Thank you.

  14. Here in Seaside, California we have a developer. Brian Boudreau, who is actually proposing a new horse racing and training track called Monterey Downs. To the majority of people who are familiar with the proposal, it is an outlandish idea. It will destroy nearly an entire Coastal Oak Woodland of over 40,000 trees covering over 500 acres as well as the associated wildlife habitat, miles of trails used by all sorts of recreational users, and the Monterey Peninsula’s closest and arguably best access to the recently-formed Fort Ord National Monument. And, of course, if you are following the drought in California, we have no water for the project.

    Unfortunately, that may not stop the project as just a small number of Seaside City Council members (3 of 5) can vote to approve the project regardless of how much the public opposes it and how environmentally destructive it is.

    A group of us who have been opposed to the project from its inception are now including data on horseracing deaths from your web site in our effort to arouse even more opposition to the project.

  15. 1 horse is one too many, the buck $$$$$ needs to end now not later. As for crowd-pleasing that’s considered a thing of the past compared to nowadays. Seeing there’s other paid sports and lottery that doesn’t involve abusing an animal. Let your inner self-be your guide, I just hope you can find it in your heart to do the right thing for the horses. There’s more animal lover now than ever before since horse cruelty has come to light in the public eye. We The People say… Enough is Enough already that goes for all God’s beloved animals.
