In the 1st race at Penn National last night, Summer Mesa “broke down” – “humanely euthanized” (Equibase). It was the 2-year-old’s first time under the whip. In the very next race, 4-year-old Stormy Stepper also “broke down” – almost assuredly dead.
No more bets, no more races; no more races, no more kills. Please play slots or scratch-offs instead. Let the animals be.
