  1. I directly witnessed, as an owner/trainer, countless racehorses get maimed and/or die on tracks.
    My late husband and I continued to rationalize what was going on all around us until we finally reached a point of no return.
    In retrospect, it took too many death episodes to realize that there were no changes that could be implemented to stop the mayhem and carnage going on all around us not to mention the corruption, but that’s a whole other blog!
    We finally realized that non-consenting, voiceless racehorses are mere gambling pawns for a corrupt business that exploits them for their bodies, limbs, and life under the guise of “entertainment” and “sport.”
    That said, we never really knew the extent of the dying because, prior to this blog, nobody was actually tracking the deaths.
    I’m was shocked to see just how many die when I started reading, and commenting on this blog.
    Thank-you to Patrick, Nicole, and his team of dedicated people who continue to expose these horrific facts, and peacefully demonstrate on behalf of this racehorses.
    The Belmont.
    The field is full of multiple drug violating trainers who have a long list of racehorses who have been maimed and/or die under their training methods and direct care.
    So nothing has changed – absolutely nothing.
    Nor will it.
    I implore anybody to please stop wagering on racehorses, tell your politicians that you don’t want casino profits going to support this, and please educate by giving them this blog to visit.
    So sorry for all racehorses who suffer and die on a massive scale for this vile business because it certainly isn’t “entertaining” reading all these death facts and watching a racehorse go down in the dirt.
    Shame on all of you who continue to participate/defend such egregious acts of violence on these defenseless racehorses.
    I will continue to be a voice for them.

  2. When one considers the alternatives for the captive horses in this brutal business maybe the ones euthanized are the lucky ones. Most that survive to “retire” are trucked to slaughter and the though ones, the track warriors, endure year after year of overwork, constant claiming, drugs and on and on.

    One such warrior is Bank of Dad bred by Ted Britt and foaled on 7 March 2005 in Texas. Bank of Dad will make his 130th start on 11June at Thistledown. He has raced spring, summer, fall and winter for 11 consecutive years in claiming races at secondary tracks. He has earned a total of $374, 500. In 2017 at the age of 12 he had 18 starts.

    Bank of Dad is currently owned and “trained”? by Sara Stanoszek.

    How is this abuse possible? How long will this horse be able to withstand this abuse ? Obviously someone needs to step in for this horse, but who ?!!

  3. Abuse and victims of abuse/dying continues due to the enablers of the abuse.
    Abuse and dying continues due to silence, lack of transparency, and actually protecting the abusers/killers such as Bob Baffert, and Todd Pletcher.
    These 2 have been killing racehorses for years, and nothing is done about it – nothing.
    Sure one could argue that it’s not deliberate, but the end result is the same.
    The horror show, and carnage continues:
    AMADA RAFAELA another victim of Bob Baffert.
    This 3 year-old filly was pulled up at the 1/2 mile pole at Frank Stronach owned Santa Anita yesterday in Race #7. She was then unsaddled, subsequently COLLAPSED and was vanned-off. Disgusting shame. VILE racehorse killer Bob Baffert. Don’t let the accolades of Justify fool you. This dude has killed many horses under his brutal training methods. You can argue that it wasn’t deliberate, but that argument is futile at this point because this isn’t justified (pardon the pun) when you have racehorses continually, and consistently DYING with no NEUTRAL investigations?! The owner of the track is an apologist himself, the members of the CHRB protect BB to no end so why in the hell wouldn’t you kill? Wonder if there was an equine insurance policy in place? Wonder what dope was given to “royally-bred” Amada Rafaela?
    Furthermore, this 3 year old filly was probably not a top priority in this barn since she was running in an optional claiming race. So they knew that she was not a Derby Oaks prospect or even a stakes prospect. It was a brutal ugly breakdown according to comments on social media. A.R. is most likely dead. VILE.
    MONTAUK another victim of Todd Pletcher.
    “Royally-bred” Montauk sold for a cool $300,000 as a yearling.
    Was then subsequently flipped for $850,000 at the 2-year-old in training sale in Ocala, Florida (an equine insurance policy most likely in place).
    They ran this colt 6 months after the purchase where he showed “incredible promise” (according to the connections) where he finished 1st by 11 1/4 lengths!! Wonder what dope they most likely had in him that day?? Of course the SECRET doping/vet records will never tell us that. So on he goes where yesterday he BROKE HIS SHOULDER while breezing at Belmont, and was subsequently confirmed euthanized. This trainer and his connections are pathetic, vile, and racehorse killers. I’m sure their alleged insurance check is in the mail.
    In any other setting, both these trainers would be in jail on Felony Animal Cruelty charges.
    It’s not only them though, it’s anybody who supports this ongoing death pit that is equally guilty.
    This entire business is a legitimized system, an entire institution, of racehorse cruelty, abuse, and dying.
    It MUST shut down, we must continue to educate people, and ensure that this business dies in the dirt just like all the racehorses that die in the dirt for this vile business.
