August 17, 2019


RACING WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED THIS AFTERNOON AT SANTA ANITA PARK. EVEN AS THEY DEAL WITH THE DEATHS OF 23 HORSES OVER THE RECENT MONTHS. THE MOST RECENT ACCIDENT WAS THIS PAST SUNDAY. WESLEY IS LIVE IN ARCADIA WHERE THERE ARE SERIOUS CONCERNS. THE GATES JUST OPENED AT SANTA ANITA. BEHIND ME, YOU CAN SEE WORKERS, A TRACTOR, ALL GETTING READY FOR A FULL DAY OF RACING. I REALLY SHOULD SAY A FULL WEEKEND OF RACING. SOME OF THE MOST LUCRATIVE RACING HAPPENING ON SATURDAY. BUT WITH NO ANSWERS ON WHY 23 HORSES HAVE DIED, MANY ARE QUESTIONING SHOULD RACING REALLY GO ON? ALL EYES ON SANTA ANITA THIS WEEK AND AFTER 23 HORSES HAVE DIED ON THE TRACK SINCE DECEMBER. BUT THIS MORNING, HORSES AND TRAINERS WERE OUT EARLY PREPARING FOR YET MORE RACES, FOUR CONSECUTIVE DAYS OF RUNS. INCLUDING THE DERBY, A KENTUCKY DERBY QUALIFIER. UNFORTUNATELY, WE’VE HAD ROUGH TIMES. BAD PUBLICITY. WERE TRYING TO GET THINGS WORKED OUT. BOB EVER DID NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE TRACKS CONDITION BUT HE WILL BE RUNNING ONE OF HIS MOST PRIZED HORSES. GAME-WINNER. TODAY WE ASKED THE TRAINER WHAT HE THOUGHT ABOUT THE TRACK. TRACK IS GOOD. MANY PEOPLE ARE QUESTIONING WHETHER THINGS ARE SAFE. FANS WITNESSES TO THE LEADERS SANTA ANITA KEPT QUIET ABOUT THE RASH OF HORSE DEATHS. ALTHOUGH OFFICIALS HAVE NO INJURIES AND SUNDAY. IN RECENT MONTHS, THEY’VE TESTED THE TRACK MULTIPLE TIMES AND HAVE REDUCED THE AMOUNT OF MEDICATION HORSES CAN BE GIVEN ON RACE DAY. – – ARE BOTH DEMANDING RACING STOP UNTIL A FULL INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETE. THE CALIFORNIA HORSERACING BOARD IS NOW JUMPING IN. UNTIL THEN, HORSES WILL CONTINUE TO HIT THE TRACK AND FANS ARE HOPING THINGS WILL TURN TRAGIC. EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE THINGS GO SMOOTHLY.

  1. why are they allowing this track to remain open ? DEATH DOWNS should be the name…. theme song… another one bites the dust….. or DIRT – TURF

  2. Such kind, compassionate folks in this industry. Their love of, and respect for, these animals under their "care" is indisputable; These thoroughbreds are loved, pampered, and babied by racing people right up until they're loaded up onto that slaughter truck.
