Through a FOIA request to the Michigan Gaming Control Board, I have confirmed the following kills at Hazel Park in 2016. (Note: The Board did not forward any data on either of Michigan’s two harness tracks.)

Charlies Gun, August 5, race 8, “fractured MCIII”

Heather Belle, August 12, race 9, “large vessel rupture”

He’s Rockin, August 19, training, “fractured humerus”

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