This morning, according to multiple sources, the 4-year-old American Currency suffered a “catastrophic injury” training at Santa Anita and is dead. He is Santa Anita’s 30th track-related kill since December 30 and the 36th dead horse overall.
Because American Currency is the fourth horse trained by Jerry Hollendorfer to die at SA, and coming as it has the morning after CNN ran a decidedly negative piece with the Hall of Famer Hollendorfer as its focus, Racing has an easy villain. In fact, there are reports that Hollendorfer will not be allowed to race any more horses at SA this weekend. This, of course, is just the latest distraction (rain, Lasix) advanced by an increasingly desperate industry. Horseracing kills horses – that’s all you need to know.
