23rd horse dies at Santa Anita after racing accident

March 31, 2019

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) ó A two-horse spill in the $100,000 San Simeon Stakes at Santa Anita on Sunday led to the 23rd equine fatality at the Southern California track in just over three months.

Arms Runner injured his right front leg and fell in the Grade 3 race on turf, two days after Santa Anita reopened to racing after being closed for nearly a month.

That caused a trailing horse, La Sardane, to fall. The 5-year-old mare got back on her feet and didnít appear to sustain any injuries. Jockey Ruben Fuentes didnít ride the rest of the day.

Fuentes was a late replacement for scheduled rider Joel Rosario.

Arms Runner was tended to by track veterinarians and vanned off. Track stewards said the horse trained by Peter Miller was euthanized. Arms Runner had three wins in 13 career starts and earnings of $125,292, according to Equibase.

1. I think the horses should start racing humans and see how they hold up.

When the humans break a leg, I wonder if the horses will have the humans euthanized? Horse racing is barbaric.

3. Meanwhile,

285 chickens, four pigs, and one cow are killed every second in the United States alone.

If youíre someone who loves animals, you can save over four hundred innocent animals each year by going vegan. You will not only ease your conscience, but you will also be saving the environment and improving your own health. My only regret about going vegan six years ago is that I didnít do it sooner.
