Mare Killed at Charles Town Last Night

Horseracing Wrongs

The 3rd at Charles Town last night, as relayed by Equibase: “VENETIAN DRIVE was fatally injured shortly after the start and had to be euthanized on the track.” She was five, and this was her 16th time under the whip. Tellingly, in her penultimate race, January 6, she finished 32+ lengths back. Also, nearly two years into her “career,” she was still being raced at the “maiden claiming” level (had yet to “win”) and cheaply at that (“For Sale” at $4,500 prior to dying last night). Owner/trainer, Donovan Raymond.

One thought on “Mare Killed at Charles Town Last Night

  1. RIP this fate she should never had to endure. Like so many MONEY and the “WE CAN DO IT “ attitude prevails whilst innocent lives are lost and abused .

    Till All The Cages are Empty and ALL The Oppressed are FREE .
