Astonishingly, the “demonstrably safer” New York Racing Association keeps killing horses. In the 1st today at Aqueduct, Mr. Tag, three, was “vanned off” and subsequently euthanized. (The Gaming Commission appended this consolation: “no apparent injury to rider.”) In this, a covid-impacted year, an unconscionable 75 racehorses have died at the three NYRA tracks (Aqueduct, Belmont, Saratoga). 75. America, you’ve been had. “The Sport of Kings” is nothing more than garden-variety animal cruelty – and mass animal murder.
