Another Kill at Fair Grounds Among Multiple Incidents on U.S. Tracks Yesterday

Horseracing Wrongs

Yesterday, according to the Equibase charts:

At Penn, Painted Clown “stopped, was eased up in the lane and returned bleeding.” Florida Boys “went lame while returning to the unsaddling area and was vanned off.” Loco Lobo “stopped in the lane and appeared sore upon return.”

At Fair Grounds, Lu Sea “was eased in the stretch and vanned off.” Red River Chase “went wrong near the back of the field late and fell then was vanned off.” Red River Chase, according to a tweet from the chart caller, is in fact dead (“shattered leg”). Same race, separate incident, Floatie “fell passing the wire”; Sarah Ann’s Pointe “fell over a fallen foe [Floatie] just past the wire…vanned off.”

That’s seven injured or dead horses at just two tracks in one day. This is horseracing.
