In addition, the following horses died on track grounds from what the industry calls “non-racing” causes. While this may be technically true, morally they are no less casualties of this vile business than the ones above.

Eye Opening Dream, July 13, Will Rogers, “found deceased in barn” (was raced just three days prior)

Conja Boo, November 22, Remington, “illness – EPM” (2-year-old coming off last of 11, 37 lengths back)
