  1. There’s one thing that this business is consistent with, and that’s maiming and/or killing racehorses!!
    Again, the PP’s reflect the “walking dead” more or less.
    All racehorses matter, but it’s racehorse warriors like IMPERIAL EAGLE that are particularly heartbreaking for me.
    IE earned $1,868,151. Yes folks – that’s over 1 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!
    This STILL wasn’t enough to put him in a grassy paddock, safe, for the rest of his life.
    All of these categories reflect people who have total disregard for the racehorse in their care, who risk their life and limbs every single day, and the owner of Imperial Eagle (Christina D. Robertson) Trainer (Tony E. Sedilo) you are the lowest form of life. You would have to be heartless, have no conscious, and have greed as your criteria to risk IE’s life after he more than earned a soft landing.
    Now, I have a challenge for Christina and Tony – if they happen to read this post.
    Publish the medical records, doping records of Imperial Eagle for the last 3 years that you were pounding this racehorse into the ground – prove me wrong- go ahead – I dare you.
    These secret medical records are the key to holding these heartless, greedy, bastards responsible, to lay down Felony Animal Cruelty charges, and to show them for what they are: delusional apologists who care nothing about the racehorse, just their pocketbook, and the pro-horse racing entities support this.
    There are no rules in place to protect the warriors like Imperial Eagle – none whatsoever, and that’s precisely why they DIE for these assholes.
    I bet that Imperial Eagle’s joints were being continuously injected, given shock wave therapy, extensive dope to mask chronic issues and/or to affect performance and the outcome of a race.
    There’s no doubt in my mind, and if you want to prove me wrong then publish the medical/doping records instead of hiding in the corner cobwebs of an empty stall that was once filled with a glorious racehorse who ran his fucking ass-off for you greedy bastards!!
