Madelynsheabadgirl Dead at Charles Town

I have confirmed that 4-year-old Madelynsheabadgirl was euthanized after breaking down at the wire of last night’s 3rd at Charles Town. Curiously, the Lori Bourne-trained (and owned) gelding had only seen the track one other time – way back in July of last year. This is horseracing.

  1. Gina,

    It is horrific and heartless.

    They need to give these horses autopsies. I thought that in order to collect insurance money there had to be an autopsy. My friend who has 50 to 60 horses says that she needs to have autopsies done in order to collect insurance. Why is that not the case in racing ??? Or is it and then they hide the results ?

    Something is terribly wrong here…Every race is terribly wrong for every horse , of course.

    They really should have mandatory autopsies. As many of these horses live while running and then there are those that die. I believe they must be being drugged to make that happen. It is like these owners, trainers, journalists, commentators, gamblers, people in the audience, do not even care why these horses are dying.

    it is such a terrible state of mind for these people to have.
