Two more horses were killed at Finger Lakes (that’s three in two days) – this time in the same race. The Gaming Commission has confirmed that 3-year-olds Justenuffaddie and Flaming Fever were euthanized following the 4th yesterday. While the replay offers little in the way of visual insight, follows are a few of the track announcer’s comments:
“Flaming Fever has now taken a bad step.”
“Looks like another one’s gone down; Justenuffaddie took a bad step.”
“What a troubled affair this one was right from the very beginning.”
The killing of fully sentient – intelligent, feeling, aware – beings for $2 bets euphemized as “bad steps,” “troubled affairs.” Their depravity knows no bounds.
