Two racehorses died yesterday at New York tracks, according to that state’s gaming commission. Cash Poor “collapsed and died after finishing fourth in [the] fourth race” at Saratoga Harness. He was ten years old and had just been raced six days prior. Overdraft, three, “was euthanized for a fractured pelvis” at Belmont. The Commission calls this one “non-racing” because the fracture occurred back on April 13 in, supposedly, her stall. However, Overdraft was raced that day, so perhaps this is faulty information. Either way, she is dead and likely suffered unnecessarily for seven weeks.
This is horseracing.
