A Broken Record: Another Killed at Los Alamitos Last Night; 4th Dead Horse There in Past 10 Days

Horseracing Wrongs

Just a few hours after reporting on Los Alamitos’ 25th kill of the year, I submit another. In the 1st race there last night, Nana Shila, says Equibase, fell and was “vanned” away. That, according to the California Horse Racing Board, is not the whole story: She was indeed “vanned off,” but at the time, she was already dead (or died in the van). What’s more, she didn’t require euthanasia, for whatever the cause (and I am still trying to ascertain), she died without the help of a vet. Nana Shila was three years old, and this was her very first time under the whip.
