Through a request to the Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission, I have confirmed the following kills on that state’s tracks in 2017.

Bk Skat Kat, June 24, Wyoming, race 2
“dislocation lumbar” (2-year-old, third race)

From Zero to Deserio, June 25, Wyoming, race 1
“collapsed after race” (2-year-old, first race)

Favorite Vision, July 5, Wyoming, training
“broken cannon bone” (2-year-old being prepped for first race)

Makinabundle, August 27, Sweetwater, race 5
“compound fracture”

Sb Hoonigan, September 3, Sweetwater, race 6
“compound fracture”

Run Stormy Run, September 9, Central Fair, race 6

Quality Guy, September 9, Central Fair, race 7
“compound fracture”

Act Your Wage, September 23, Energy, race 8
“compound fracture”

Judys Girl, September 30, Energy, race 9

In addition, these still-very-much-active racehorses died on track grounds from what the industry deceptively calls “non-racing” causes. No matter, morally they are no less casualties of this vile business than the ones above.

Sb Itty Bitty, August 18, Sweetwater
“flipped over in shedrow – fractured skull”

Eyema Dancer, October 1, Energy
“colic” (2-year-old, had already been raced four times)

There can be no justification for the killing of animals for $2 bets. End it. Now.

Ima Polaris, September 17, Energy Downs 8, “bad step at wire – slab fracture”

In addition, the following horse died on track grounds from what the industry calls a “non-racing” cause. While this may be technically true, morally he is no less a casualty of this vile business than the ones above.
