Last week in U.S. horseracing – not including training and harness casualties.

(Chart Terms: “Broke Down” – racing-speak for dead; “Vanned Off” – required horse ambulance to get off the track; many, if not most, of these animals will resurface on my year-end FOIA kill-reports; “Bled” – usually indicates pulmonary hemorrhage)
