Young Horse Dies After Catastrophic Injury During His First Race At Santa Anita

Arcadia, CA – A young racehorse, just three years of age, has died following a catastrophic injury at the Santa Anita Track on Saturday. According to sources, Beverly Vista, owned by Little Red Feather Racing, had to be euthanized after being injured during the sixth race on the main track.

In what would be his first, and last race, Beverly Vista became the eighth horse to die at the track this year. A video of the race was altered to remove his injury, but a front leg can be seen dangling as he is walked off of the track to an ambulance. Animal welfare advocates have questioned why Beverly Vista was forced to walk with the broken leg, and taken to a van rather than being humanely euthanized at the track.

Track officials claim that Santa Anita is the safest track in North America. Last year, 12 horses died at the track, and a staggering 42 horses died there in 2019. Animal Victory created a petition to address the deadly track. It was closed after the Public Information Officer for the California Horse Racing Board sent correspondence outlining safety measures that were being implemented to protect the horses.

  1. Horse racing is a cruel, unnecessary, and unjustifiable “sport” that makes money for the industry. No caring society would allow it.

  2. Where is the petition for this one?? As one who has taken in neglected horses, I find this disgusting and uncalled for. The industry of horseracing needs to stop!!! The people do not care about those horses!!! Only the money that can be made off of them. The love of money is the root of all evil!! It is in the Bible. This proves it!! This is not what God intended when he created horses. It is absolutely appalling what people will do for money. AND the people who go to these horse races are just as guilty. There are a whole lot of other things where their money could be put to good use. What the heck is wrong with society that they condone this kind of treatment of animals. Dog racing is another sport that needs to be banned. Bullfighting is another!!! These people are sick that they take pleasure in the abuse of animals. SCUMBAGS…..the owners and the ones who go to the races. May they all meet their karma.

  3. Horse racing should be illegal. Those involved always claim to love the horses, but it is all about the money at an animal’s expense.

  6. Santa Anita where owners send horses to die and get the insurance money! Back in the early 80’s my mom married a race horse trainer. They NEVER ran horses at Santa Anita because they knew then the track was a death sentence for horses. Nothing changes!

  7. Horse racing needs to just be outlawed and banned. Too many horses have to suffer and die just so a human can have some bragging rights!!
