Another Kill at Belmont – That’s 103 on the NY Year

2-year-old Bourbonfuhrme was euthanized after being “vanned off” in the 6th at Belmont Saturday. This, says the witty chartwriter, after “cross[ing] the finish line for the final minor slice of the pot” ($830). According to the NYS Gaming Commission, 103 horses have perished at NY tracks in 2017 (though surely the actual number is higher).

This is horseracing.

  1. The horror story continues for these innocent horses and those who have the power to intervene do NOTHING.
    The maiming and killing of these animals belongs in Roman times.
    And here we are a civilised society living in the 21st century.

  2. Carnage!
    This is unacceptable in 2017, and it must end.
    On previous posts I suggested that dope has residual effects on the foal crops.
    Well, Bourbonfuhrme’s sire is Congaree.
    Bob Baffert trained Congaree so you can bet your bottom dollar that he was kept on a steady stream of dope.
    Of course the “secret” medical records would most likely reveal this, but nobody can know for sure.
    It’s repulsive that Gov. Cuomo financially supports these hell holes for racehorses with taxpayer and/or casino money.
    It’s time for people to get together, speak out to ensure that no more money goes to support this antiquated business model.
    Sorry for you Bourbonfuhrme.
