Killed at Hazel Park, 2016

Through a FOIA request to the Michigan Gaming Control Board, I have confirmed the following kills at Hazel Park in 2016. (Note: The Board did not forward any data on either of Michigan’s two harness tracks.)

Charlies Gun, August 5, race 8, “fractured MCIII”

Heather Belle, August 12, race 9, “large vessel rupture”

He’s Rockin, August 19, training, “fractured humerus”

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

  1. I can think of 10 racetracks (hell holes) that should immediately be shut down – this is one of them.
    Finger Lakes is another.
    All racetracks are nothing but blood sucking leeches that suck the blood out of the racehorses and taxpayers for money.
    They even suck the profits from the casinos that should be going for essential community services instead of these death camps.
    First of all, Michigan is a bankrupt state that had to scramble for money to provide safe drinking water to the residents of Flint..
    Yet, government/taxpayers money goes to breeders of racehorses in this state, and to keep this track open.
    Talk about insanity.
    Furthermore, they should all shut down because the horse racing industry is legitimized animal cruelty, and a death camp as seen in these horrific FOIA lists.
    So sorry for all racehorses that died for this despicable business.
