Kills in Back-To-Back Races at Arizona Downs

Horseracing Wrongs

From the just-released Arizona Downs Stewards Report for August 10:

In the 5th race, “Jomelo pulled up in first turn, vanned off…fractured sesamoid bones – euthanized.” Jomelo was ten – yes, ten – years old and had been beaten and ground down for over eight years and 62 races before finally succumbing.

Prior to the next race, “Nana’s Rule [was] fractious in the gate, flipped and broke through gate, ran loose and bumped into rail, fractured canon bone – euthanized.” Nana’s Rule was four, and, like any “child,” was For Sale at $3,000 just before dying.

This is horseracing.
