Unless otherwise noted, immediate cause of death was a fracture of one kind or another; underlying cause – Racing itself.

Through a FOIA request to the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following kills on that state’s tracks in 2018. Unless otherwise noted, immediate cause of death was a fracture of one kind or another; underlying cause – Racing itself. (Please note: The Commission forwarded but one training death; surely, this is wrong.)

In addition, these still-very-much-active racehorses died on track grounds from what the industry craftily calls “non-racing” causes. Technically true, perhaps, but morally they are no less casualties of this vile business than the ones above.
