New Year, Same Story: Golden Bay Dead at Aqueduct, Generous George at Golden Gate

The first two racing kills for the New Year have been recorded:

2-year-old Golden Bay, under the whip for the very first time, broke down yesterday at Aqueduct (6th) and was euthanized in the dirt. Trainer, Linda Rice; owner, Francis Paolangeli; breeders, Richard Troncone Sr/Jr. On the other coast, 3-year-old Generous George did not survive the Golden Gate day after breaking down in the 7th. Trainer/owner, Alex Paszkeicz; breeder, George Kypros MD. (Apparently, the Hippocratic Oath doesn’t apply to horses.) This is horseracing, 2015.

  1. Also, I have heard there are problems re. ousting of trainers and horses at the former Calder track, now Gulfstream West. Some of the horses, it seems, have nowhere to go. I believe Churchill Downs is involved.

  2. Golden Bay and Generous George were equine babies. Whipped, forced to run, denied a normal existence. Dead. For YOUR entertainment, racing supporters!
