The Death of a Horse

This fume will pass until the next one arrives and the sad tale is played out again; some will hit me harder than others, even though they all toll the same. I will find nonsense on which to vent my pique and will fend off the tidal wave of waste and cruelty that accompanies every breakdown.

My question is why was this horse still racing? Check out this story in the Bloodhorse which came out today.

Before his fatal breakdown, there were three instances of broken bones or fractures plus a slew of lessor injuries. The fact that this horse was still racing in one way was a miracle, but otherwise down right negligent.

As far as I am concerned, this horse was abused. Action like this will get horseracing banned.

I think it was the second horse that had to be pulled up that day.
