16 horses die at the Del Mar racetrack

November 8, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Although the summer race meet lasted only seven weeks, 16 horses perished or had to be euthanized at the Del Mar racetrack near San Diego. PETA is urging officials to obtain and release all veterinary records so we can see if the horses were forced to train and race while sore or injured and on drugs, rather than resting. If officials refuse to look into all the possible reasons these horses died, it would seem to indicate an unwillingness to admit the enormity of the drug problem in horse racing and would sentence more horses to the same fate.
