2 More Dead in California

The California Horse Racing Board has disclosed the following:

Born to Serve, a 5-year-old under the whip for the 16th time, suffered “multiple fractures” in the 4th at Sacramento July 23 – dead.

At Los Alamitos, “one equine death was reported this week [July 24] due to racing injuries.” Name, however, withheld.

This is horseracing.

  1. Born to Serve – his name says it all, doesn’t it. Apologists always say “they are BRED to run”…they need to say it like it really is – bred and born to serve. A racehorse’s life is never his/her own. I’m so sorry, Born to Serve. Your servitude is over but only because so is your life.

  2. BORN TO SERVE a cruelty circus, and a death camp.
    Born to Serve while being whipped/beaten, doped, dumped, and/or killed.
    Born to serve a stranger who places a $2 bet, who doesn’t bat an eyelash as you lay dying in the dirt, who doesn’t give a hoot if you live or die.
    Born to serve a despicable, antiquated, legitimized death camp that’s endorsed by our government, often supported by taxpayers and/or casinos.
    So sorry for you, and the countless others who born and die for $2 bets.
    This is the dirty world of horse racing.
