Killed, 2018

The following racehorses were killed on American tracks in 2018. Please note, however, that these are on-site deaths only – the “catastrophically injured” who were euthanized back at the owner’s farm or after being acquired by a rescue are not reflected here. Neither, the horses who perished at the over 200 private training facilities strewn across the land. In addition, several states rejected my FOIA request; other states, still, omitted training deaths. So, this list – roughly 1,000 strong – could easily and reasonably be doubled, leaving us with upward of 2,000 kills last year.

Furthermore, this list says nothing of the multiple thousands of 2018’s “retired” who were shackled, hung, slashed, bled-out, and butchered in foreign abattoirs. In short, what follows is far from a complete reckoning of Horseracing’s carnage.

Finally, while reading, please be mindful that the killing is but a part of the story. There is, also: the pounding of unformed bodies; the intense, unremitting, solitary confinement; the whipping; the drugging and doping; and the commodification – collectively, the Horseracing Wrongs. – Patrick Battuello
