14 Horses “Vanned Off” in New Mexico Over Past Three Days

Sunday…

Running Fauzett, Albuquerque, “bled, vanned off”

Diamond Street, Belmont, “reported after the race to have bled”

Templer Glory, Gulfstream, “vanned off”

Gentlmens Agrement, Gulfstream, “vanned off” after winning “under steady urging”

Sovereign Knight, Mountaineer, “vanned off”

Barnstorming, Parx, “vanned off”

The state of New Mexico can be particularly proud: Between its two currently active tracks (Albuquerque and Ruidoso), 14 different horses were ambulanced off over the past three days. It’s likely that many – a majority? – of those are dead.

  1. The racing industry has blood on its hands every single day.

    This is not a sport, nor is it entertainment.

  2. The horse racing industry is a corruption cesspool, cruelty circus, and a death camp.
    It has no place in the 21st century.
    All funding must be stopped so that these tracks can shut down one by one.
    When this antiquated business model finally ends then the corruption, cruelty, abuse, over breeding, dumping, and death camp with go along with it.
    That day can’t come soon enough.
    To all the slaves of this slave industry killed at the hands of your slave masters – may you find peace, may your spirit give us the strength to continue on your behalf.
    We will never cease to be a voice for you as you lay dying in the dirt.

  3. If you have horseracing in your state, email your state legislatures. Provide the link for Horseracing Wrongs.
