“Catastrophic Injury…Euthanized on Track” – 6th Dead Horse at Belmont in a Week

Horseracing Wrongs

The 2nd at Belmont today, as relayed by Equibase: “TALAKO suffered a catastrophic injury to his left front…got immediately put to a protective hold being guided outside and expertly pulled up, then was euthanized on track.”

Well thank heavens he was “expertly pulled up,” huh?

Talako was three years old and under the whip for just the second time. He is the 6th dead horse in a week at Belmont, 21st on the year. NYRA’s “demonstrably safer racing” exposed, again. Speaking of NYRA, this race has been blotted out from the replay section of its website. How’s that for greater transparency? Vile – to the core.
