So Far This Year, At Least 35 Dead on Ohio Tracks

Horse racing. Yet another animal cruelty that way too many people find entertaining!

Horseracing Wrongs

In its most recent meeting (September 30th), the Ohio State Racing Commission disclosed that through September 29th of this year, 35 horses – 28 Thoroughbred, 7 Standardbred – have died racing or training on Ohio tracks. (And there was no Thoroughbred racing the first 3 1/2 months of the year.) Five of those kills came in a recent five-day period at Belterra. The minutes go on to say that “[Executive Director] Crawford and Chairman Schmitz expressed concern about this development.” This is Ohio horseracing.
