Santa Anita Strikes Again: 2-Year-Old Killed in Training This Morning

Horseracing Wrongs

Miss Romania, a 2-year-old filly being prepped for her first race, was killed this morning at Santa Anita – officially (CHRB), “shoulder.” She is the 7th dead horse at this embattled track in the first six weeks of 2020. That’s a heckuva pace. But worry not, says management, for they can boast this: “Horses raced or trained at Santa Anita Park over 420,000 times in 2019 with a 99.991% safety rate.” Vile. Simply vile.
