“The ground-penetrating radar verified all of the materials, silt, clay and sand, as well as moisture content, are consistent everywhere on this track. This testing ensures all components, the 5-inch cushion, pad and base are consistent and in good order.” – track expert Mick Peterson (NBCMiami)
After Mr. Peterson declared the Santa Anita track “100 percent ready [for racing to resume]” last Wednesday, Eskenforadrink was felled Saturday – and today, another: Multiple sources have confirmed that Lets Light the Way, three, broke down this morning while training and was euthanized. She is the 23rd dead racehorse (21 on-track, 2 off) at Santa Anita since December 26. Now back to that “ground-penetrating radar” – smoke and mirrors, folks. They can’t stop the killing – and they know it.
