Three More “Bad Step” Kills at Mountaineer

Horseracing Wrongs

I have been able to confirm the following deaths at Mountaineer Racetrack:

Pastorelli in the 7th race July 9. He was four years old and under the whip for the 10th time. Rose’s Asset in the 4th race August 25. She was six years old and under the whip for the 35th time. Flying Around in the 9th race December 2. He was six years old and under the whip for the 53rd time.

It’s worth noting that according to my source, all three were euthanized where they lay – on the track, that is. Yet according to the Equibase notes, each was “vanned off” after taking a “bad step” – no mention of death. They lie and deceive because dead horses – now more than ever – are bad for business.
