  1. So we are worried about horses dying at a race track while the government doesn’t do anything for protecting endangered species or homeless veterans on the streets dying …smh

  2. How much in insurance money has been paid out to these horse owners since the death of the first few horse's. I knew this is out of water but all these horses deaths smells pretty fishy to me

  3. Either gov. Punky Frown, or Steve Urkel's rising spirits deceased the horses. OOP! WHU-OH! DID I DO DAT? 26x.
