Horse racing is on life support anyway -- even here, in what the signs tell me is the "Horse Capital of the World", most of the tracks are propped up by casino gambling, like slots -- but if a horse dies at that Breeder's Cup, it's done.

Shut the damn track down and take a really long look at the racing surface and training practices at the track, too  many horses died already.

Maybe it is the track but with similar tragedies at Del Mar it may be more than that

Why hasn't the state suspended its license? Seeing how California is always passing laws that make no sense, shouldn't they do something that does?

"The accident and the necropsy report will be reviewed to learn what, if anything, could have been done to prevent the accident."

What, oh what could have possibly been done to prevent the death of a horse after 33 other horses had died at the same place?

Vin would've had that trifecta, too!

Start over from scratch with the breeding?

Horse racing should be treated like greyhound racing, and banned accordingly

It's not just Santa Anita.  4 horses dead at the Keeneland fall meet this year:

Here in FL that is the case.  The tracks in South Florida seem to be casinos with a side of horse racing.  Greyhound racing was outlawed last year.  The dog tracks that still exist may live on as casinos.

/the games offered at these casinos are kinda crappy.  Its slots, video poker, hold em and maybe blackjack.
//Gulfstream Park was completely redone as a bar, restaurant district and casino with a track.  Its actually a fun place to go.

Absolutely, let's bring back more respectable sports.

How many things are more important than a dead horse? Basically everything. But dont tell that to the huffers, or they might have to actually do their job instead of changing a few words in their weekly "boo hoo a horse died" article
