I have confirmed (Stewards Report) that last Wednesday there were two – yes, two – kills at Delaware Park. In the 3rd, Glitzy “pulled up lame around the first turn, was vanned off, and afterward humanely euthanized.” Glitzy was a 5-year-old mare being raced for the 8th time. Two races later, Pandamonia, too, “pulled up lame…humanely euthanized.” Pandamonia was a 2-year-old colt under the whip for the very first time.
Last week, I reported kills on back-to-back days at Delaware; today, two in three races. Or, four dead racehorses in six days of racing. How can the good people of The First State countenance this? Please help end it – no more bets, no more attendance, no more going to the racino (which directly subsidizes racing). Please, for the horses.
