    I know Jose Romero personally, he claims ownership to the horse with shoulder injury.....I would not allow him near a goldfish!

    Shut the place down. People should not be racing animals for entertainment.

    A pelvic injury and a shoulder injury both rare and both happening a few days apart....even for jumpers these injuries are rare. I'd love to see the autopsies on these horses. I see everyone wants this track to close but these numbers are high. I'd almost guess someone is trying to shut down this track at the sake of the horses. I could see other owning companies doing it. There's a bigger picture here we aren't seeing.

    With all the big money involved I can't understand why they could not just tear down those track lanes and completely redo them with the proper foundation and stuff.

    Putting a horse down is a tough decision. A bit easier if you know you weren't responsible, but tough if you were part of the cause.

    Reminds me of the killers at Boeing with their BAU between the two crashes.

    Geez, I thought the horses were well cared for and “wanted to run” but this smacks of investor-based animal cruelty.

    Business as usual for the Sport of Criminals. For those who want to think otherwise, that horse racing is for the elite, the "refined," and the noble: This latest equine victim was last purchased for $900., yet was forced to run -- injured, apparently -- at the so-called "Great Race Place," or, the "Horror-Show Death Track," as it is now more commonly known.
    The poor thing had three hooves on the slaughter truck already; I suppose it's a blessing he wasn't further tormented by his "aristocratic" owners.
