Belmont Equals Santa Anita With 43rd Death of 2019

Horseracing Wrongs

Yesterday, the Gaming Commission reports, Solar Fire, two, “sustained a r elbow fracture in his stall” and was euthanized. The Commission, of course, will categorize this as “non-racing,” unmistakably implying that the connections’, the track’s, the industry’s hands are clean. Lies. It matters not where death ultimately comes – in the stall, on the track, at the slaughterhouse – all racehorse deaths are Racing deaths. Full stop.
