The NYS Gaming Commission has confirmed that 3-year-old Notwhoiseemtobe was killed – after, that is, taking the proverbial “bad step” – in the 4th yesterday at Finger Lakes. It was the pubescent animal’s third race in 28 days.
Also, the Commission reports, 4-year-old Lost in D Shuffle was euthanized Sunday at Finger Lakes for what is being termed a “non-racing” reason. While that may be technically true, this still-very-much-active racehorse (last raced August 29 – “failed to respond”) is no less a casualty of this vile business than his compatriot above.
Please stop betting on horse races.
