Two More Killed at Saratoga – 18 Dead There This Summer

Horseracing Wrongs

In each of the past two mornings, a horse has died training at Saratoga Race Course:

3-year-old Mr Jaggers, “injury to RF leg…euthanized”
2-year-old Shirelle, “collapsed and died at 5/8 pole”

The self-styled “oldest sporting venue in the nation” now counts 18 dead horses on the summer. 18 – four over its historical average. If that doesn’t prove that “reform” – “safe racing” – is a lie, I don’t know what will.
