August 21, 2019


HE’S HERE WITH MORE. REPORTER: DOZENS MORE IN 2018 PRECEDE LOCAL OFFICIALS INVESTIGATED WHY THE 23 HORSES SO ARE ACCIDENTS AT SANTA ANITA AND HAD TO BE EUTHANIZED. BEING COVERED MANY MORE HORSES THAT DIED AND WE WARN YOU SOME OF THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC. WHEN 23 HORSES DIED AT SANTA ANITA RACETRACK IN A FOUR-MONTH STRETCH FROM DECEMBER OF LAST YEAR THROUGH MARCH OF THIS YEAR IT MADE WORLDWIDE NEWS. ALL RACES HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED BUT WE HAVE OBTAINED THESE DOCUMENTS. NECK TOPSY REPORTS AUTOPSIES FOR 2018 SHOWING MANY MORE DEATHS THAT HAVEN’T MADE THE NEWS UNTIL NOW. “CBS 2 NEWS” IS LEARNED 36 ADDITIONAL FORCES DIED AT SANTA ANITA IN 2018 BABIES ARE HORSES THAT HAD TO BE EUTHANIZED AFTER RACING OR TRAINING AT THE TRACK. HORSES LIKE 10 BLESSINGS. THE JOCKEY STEERS THE HORSE OFF THE TRACK BECAUSE OF A SHATTERED FRONT ANKLE. 10 BLESSINGS WAS EUTHANIZED AFTER THE RACE. IT DOES MENTION THAT THE HORSE HAD A FRACTURE IN A DIFFERENT WAY. WE ASKED VETERINARIAN TO REVIEW THE 36th NECROPSIES. SHE TREATS HORSES THAT PENN NATIONAL RACE COURSE IN PENNSYLVANIA. SHE SAYS 10 BLESSINGS HAD PRE-EXISTING INJURIES AS WELL AS ALMOST ALL OF THE OTHER 36 HORSES. A LOT OF CHRONIC WEAR AND TEAR ON THE SIGNS AT THE HORSES MAY NOT HAVE BEEN 100% COMFORTABLE WHEN THEY WERE RACING OR TRAINING. HORSES LIKE MY SWEET EMMA EUTHANIZED IN MADE IT ALL OF LAST YEAR WITH THE NECROPSIES SHOWING A PREDISPOSING LESION BUT THEY FRACTURED HER ANKLE AND DIAL ME END EUTHANIZED AFTER MAKING CONTACT WITH ANOTHER HORSE BUT THE NECROPSIES SHOWED A PREVIOUS SHOULDER INJURY. THE QUESTION IS, DID ANY OF THE 36 TRAINERS OR THEIR BETS KNOW ABOUT THE INJURIES? DR. PASSES IN SOME INSTANCES THEY MAY HAVE THE SHE SAYS TRAINERS AT SANTA ANITA TOLD HER THEY ARE STRUGGLING COURAGE TO COMPETE MORE OFTEN. STAY THE RACING OFFICE IS CALLING ASKING PEOPLE TO ENTER THE HORSES BEFORE THEY ARE READY TO COME BACK THAT IS ANOTHER COMPONENT AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT MAYBE YOU NEED TO SANTA ANITA. ALL TRACKS ARE GREATLY BY THE GALLUP OR NEW HORSE RACING BOARD AND EVEN THE MEDICAL YEAR ASSIGNED TO THE BOARD SAYS HERE AT SANTA ANITA THERE IS PRESSURE TO PERFORM. ARE HORSES TRAIN MORE THAN THEY DO IN OTHER JURISDICTIONS. REPORTER: THE VETERINARIAN DR. RICK ARTHUR OVERSEAS HORSE WELFARE AND SAVE THE FOR THE CALIFORNIA RACING FORD. IS THAT THE BOARD’S RESPONSIBILITY TO WATCH OUT FOR THE HORSES? TRAINERS ARE LICENSED TO BE TRAINERS. ON THE VETERINARIAN COULD ORDER OVERSEAS ALL OF US, RIGHT? PAYMENT THEY DIDN’T ALLOW THEM TO TRAIN HORSES. THE BOARD HAS A RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVERYTHING. IT DOES BUT THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN REGULATE. THE DAY AFTER OUR INTERVIEW AT THE SANTA ANITA RACETRACK TRACK OWNERS ANNOUNCED FUNDING OF THE CUTTING-EDGE SCANNING DEVICE TO FLAG PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS AND HORSES. THE TRACK REFUSED AN ON CAMERA INTERVIEW THAT ISSUED THE STATEMENT IN PART. WE HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO REDUCE THE RISK THAT HORSES AT SANTA ANITA WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS AND INJURIES SHOULD NOT BE MASKED FOR BROTHER ADDRESS OF THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF SCRUTINY PEERS 60 FROM THE JOCKEY CLUB SHOW IN THE LAST THREE YEARS FORCE DEATHS HAVE GONE DOWN AT SANTA ANITA FROM 2.83 DEATHS PER THOUSAND STARTS IN 2016 TO 2.0 OR IN 2018. THAT’S STILL HIGHER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE WHICH WAS 1.68. DO YOU THINK THE U.N. THE BOARD HAD DONE ENOUGH TO KEEP THE HORSES SAVE? I THINK WE COULD ALWAYS DO MORE AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF THE CERP TOWARD IT STEERS A LOT OF COMMUNICATION. UNDER THIS RECENT STRING — STRING OF ACCIDENTS THEY ANNOUNCED A CRACKDOWN ON THE USE

  1. Holy shit, 35 more?! Had no idea. Goldstein be putting MFs on blast, and I love it. Not some PETA freak but this horse racing shit has to go. It's a relic of the past and fucked up as hell to these majestic creatures

  2. In this day of animal protection, political correctness, all that crap, why is horse racing even legal? I guess the better question is, what politicians benefit from horse racing? Mic drop

  3. Just disgusting what is going on! God bless those investigating and trying to stop this horrible sport.
