  1. I just have a question. Where are these “casualties” reported at? Not doubting the authenticity just want to see it in writing.

    • Spoken like a true racing apologist, “Moichido”…spelling errors, alias, your concern for the industry OVER the horse and all…your kind never fails to (unknowingly) sport your true colors.

      • No, No, the only disgrace is the abuse of defenseless horses in this corrupt gambling business and the humans who participate and defend the business. Now that is the true disgrace, Moichido !!

  2. It is unfortunate you won’t share my reply about Jerry N Duke. I have pictures of him a happy horse being ridden by his new owner. It’s a tragedy you won’t post the positives in these horses lives.
