Multiple Fractures, Torn Artery, Stomach Ulcers – One Racehorse’s Death

Horseracing Wrongs

As I’ve oft written, “went wrong” is one of the racing industry’s go-to euphemisms for dead, especially in the not-so-great (for animals) Commonwealth of Kentucky. In the 9th race at Churchill November 24, Tigers Rule was one of those. And now we know for sure (Racing Commission) that he is dead, and here’s why:

“Comminuted fractures of the lateral sesamoid, including apical and basilar fragments; comminuted basilar fracture of the medial sesamoid; fetlock was subluxated with damage to the tendinous and ligamentous structures; tearing of the medial digital artery and vein.” Oh, and “ulceration of the stomach.”

This is horseracing.

  1. And the hopelessly corrupt DA Jackie Lacey can’t find abuse anywhere she looks.
    Just like Frankie Stronach and the punks at CHRB.
    money grab no matter how much disrespect you have for yourself. Moral midgets.
    Gotta get some billboards up soon.
