Santa Anita’s 43 dead racehorses, 2019 – with still a few days to go...

Horseracing Wrongs

Buried deep in the ethically-challenged John Cherwa’s Santa Anita kickoff column in the LA Times last evening was this: “However, there was a fatality Dec. 26…Truest Reward, a 3-year-old gelding, broke his left front leg on the training track…”

Perhaps he and the Times thought no one would notice – especially with the article brazenly titled “Santa Anita opener goes off without a hitch.” Truest Reward, incidentally, was trained by the equally challenged Doug O’Neill – yes, the same $133 million-earning Doug O’Neill who cynically leads a bunch of lowly-paid backstretch workers in “counter” at our track protests.

Vile people. Vile industry.
