The NYS Gaming Commission has confirmed the training kill – “euthanized on track” – of 4-year-old Otoy yesterday morning at Aqueduct. He is the 28th racehorse to die on or at a NYS track this year.

Also, the California Horse Racing Board has confirmed the raceday kill – “euthanized on track” – of 6-year-old Sweet Silica last Friday at Golden Gate. The Stewards Minutes note, “Miraculously, the other eight horses were able to avoid the fallen rider and horse.” Miraculous. This is horseracing.
