Silverado Mist Dead at Santa Anita

According to the chartwriter (Equibase), 2-year-old filly Silverado Mist “took a bad step” in the 8th at Santa Anita yesterday, “was pulled up in distress and vanned off.” In fact, multiple sources report, she is dead – euthanized for that “bad step.”

This is horseracing.

  1. What’s wrong with these people?
    It’s always “a bad step” or a miss-step”.
    Why are they reluctant to say that the horse broke down, suffered a catastrophic injury and died?
    Ah yes, not a good look for racing, it might turn people off.
    Liars.
    Another 2 year old baby horse dies for entertainment and gambling.

  2. Silverado Mist – so sorry for you, but you deserve to have your side of the story told.
    You were bred by an apologist and greedy seeking human being called Cheryl Prudhomme who dumped you into the sale when you were just a weanling where you sold for $10,000.
    This is standard operating procedures when it comes to breeding racehorses: bred to dump.
    You didn’t sell as a yearling (although they tried) so you were put into training.
    You were probably pushed hard to make the 2-year-old in training sale where you sold for $40,000.
    Right after the sale you ran at Gulfstream Park, and then you were shipped out thousands of miles to California.
    You were probably subjected to doping in combination with Shock Wave Therapy, beating/whipping so that you could fill a race, generate income and die for such frivolous reasons and vile apologists.
    This is the life and experience of many racehorses.
    Most are crippled up and lame if they make it out alive.
    This is the truth behind the fancy hats, and “entertainment” banner.
    Please don’t support this horror show.

  3. The depraved, unconscionable, merciless indifference to the hard work & suffering of these magnificent animals is tragic & heartbreaking — WHAT will it take to SHUT DOWN these brutal, immoral venues — WHAT will it take to convince the abusers these horses are NOT stuffed animals ! — WHY so difficult to remedy this situation ! — What about the good, caring, moral people who MAY be around — WHY NOT speak out and DO something for these beautiful animals — WHO protects these horses ! — WHO watches out for them ! — SHUT DOWN THESE MONSTROUS VENUES !
