Oregon’s Dead Racehorses, 2016

Through a FOIA request to the Oregon Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills at Oregon tracks in 2016. (Notably, the Commission did not forward any training deaths – though surely there were some.)

Stardemalion, January 11, Portland 8, “fractured leg”

Chick Meter, June 11, Oregon Livestock 8, “collapse – sudden death” (after winning)

Jess a Lil Lacey, July 2, Grants Pass 5, “fractured leg”

Itsastormynight, September 25, Portland 6, “fractured leg”

Wizsito, October 3, Portland 2, “fractured leg”

TNT Party, November 21, Portland 3, “fractured front legs” (plural)

Fnf Bruja, December 26, Portland 2, “fractured leg”

Rolling Thunder, December 26, Portland 4, “fractured leg”

There can be no justification for the killing of animals for $2 bets. End it. Now.
