Three More Racehorse Deaths Prompt Protests

State officials announced that three racehorses died at Southern California tracks. The news prompted animal rights activists to stage a protest to end the deadly sport.

Cypress, CA – The announcement that three more racehorses have died prompted protests outside Los Alamitos Race Course in Cypress. Officials with the California Horse Racing Board announced two racehorse deaths at Santa Anita, and one at Los Alamitos.

The tragic announcement prompted animal rights activists to stage a protest on Tuesday. One protester told ABC 7 News that the key to ending the deadly sport is to outlaw gambling. Heather Wilson said gambling is the “lifeblood of this disgusting, outdated bloodsport.”

There are an alarming number of racehorses dying on tracks across the nation. According to an eye-opening article in Salon, the reason is human greed. Horses are forced to run too young, bred to have lightweight bones, and doped up to push them beyond their limits.

The results are devastating. Horses suffer catastrophic injuries on the track and they are killed rather than rehabbed.

The recent deaths include a six-year-old mare named Twentyseventrouts, a four-year-old filly named Classic Coyne, and a two-year-old filly named Animae.

Race track officials have stated that the tracks have been inspected and they are safe, but the problem seems to be the people breeding and training the horses…racehorses who give their all to a sport that is focused solely on the money.

  2. Maybe the possible money to win has become greater than the life of a horse. People need to put at least as much time into safety as they put into trying to beat the system. Big fines for breeders and/or trainers who knowingly race a horse that is not up to par. Perhaps an anonymous tip line of some sort; someone always knows what’s going on. For an animal that can live 20-30 years to die at 2, 3, 4, 5 because of greed is shameful.

    People ruin everything for money; each other, the earth, animals, nature. We should do better for ALL life.

  3. Horse racing is a reflection of how disgusting the human race can be. Using animals to make money with complete disregard for their well-being shows the worst in people. The most dangerous animal on the planet is on two legs. Anything connected to gambling brings out the worst in mankind. Horse and dog racing should be illegal. Anyone who says that it supports people’s livelihoods is sick because nobody should profit by forcing animals to do this.

  7. On Thursday, the horror for HORSES come to Saratoga Springs,NY for the annual run. This racing continues to two weeks in September.

    I would like to see a daily count of horse
    deaths, with a accumulated total. Maybe even the gender, age, name and trainer.
    But NY and city government, horse owners and trainers, and the racetrack itself would fight not to have this information provided to the public.

  8. There are more times than not I am actualy Embarrassed to be a human being. We Knowingly place bets on animals we ALL KNOW they ABUSE TO DEATH, Literally. Yet we allow this, HOW??? This is right up there with Child abuse and elderly abuse, to know and Use things that cannot defend and Speak for themselves IS the definition of Torture. ENOUGH already, we need to Grow and STOP THIS now. If we cannot protect one of our animal friend and stop the MURDER there, what hope do we have a race? The Wrong species is in charge of this planet…..
