Collapsed After Race; Broken Cannon; Fractured Skull – Wyoming’s Dead, 2017

Through a request to the Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission, I have confirmed the following kills on that state’s tracks in 2017.

Bk Skat Kat, June 24, Wyoming, race 2
“dislocation lumbar” (2-year-old, third race)

From Zero to Deserio, June 25, Wyoming, race 1
“collapsed after race” (2-year-old, first race)

Favorite Vision, July 5, Wyoming, training
“broken cannon bone” (2-year-old being prepped for first race)

Makinabundle, August 27, Sweetwater, race 5
“compound fracture”

Sb Hoonigan, September 3, Sweetwater, race 6
“compound fracture”

Run Stormy Run, September 9, Central Fair, race 6
“spiral fracture”

Quality Guy, September 9, Central Fair, race 7
“compound fracture”

Act Your Wage, September 23, Energy, race 8
“compound fracture”

Judys Girl, September 30, Energy, race 9
“compound fracture”

In addition, these still-very-much-active racehorses died on track grounds from what the industry deceptively calls “non-racing” causes. No matter, morally they are no less casualties of this vile business than the ones above.

Sb Itty Bitty, August 18, Sweetwater
“flipped over in shedrow – fractured skull”

Eyema Dancer, October 1, Energy
“colic” (2-year-old, had already been raced four times)

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

  1. When are lawmakers going to admit this so-called sport is as bad as murder. The horses are pushed beyond their endurance and their hearts burst or give out. They are drugged, they fall and this needs to stop.
