Mongolian Groom Killed at Breeders’ Cup – And Whipped Right to the End

Horseracing Wrongs

In the 12th and final race of the richest day in horseracing, Mongolian Groom “broke down” and according to the Daily Racing Form’s Jay Privman, is dead. The 4-year-old was being whipped right up to the moment his leg snapped (see below).

Ignore everything else you’ve heard and read about “safety” and horseracing. Here’s all you need to know: If they can’t prevent a kill at this track, on this day – with the whole world watching and vigilance (not to mention handwringing) at an all-time high – they can’t prevent, at least not in any meaningful way, kills period. It’s inherent to what they do. And it must end. Now.
