Update 11/4/2019: In June 2019, we ended this petition - hoping against hope that the horse racing deaths at Santa Anita Park would come to an end. Tragically, with the start of a new season, the senseless deaths have resumed. The most recent death was a four-year-old gelding named Mongolian Groom, who had to be euthanized after breaking his hind leg during the final race of the Breeder's cup at Santa Anita Park. With Mongolian Groom's recent death, the number of dead race horses at this track now stands at 37.
We are relaunching this petition to collect more signatures to present to officials with a request to shut down this plagued race track. Enough is enough.
Update! Before this petition was published, the death of the 29th horse was announced! A three-year-old filly named Truffalino collapsed and died from a heart attack during a race on Sunday. This madness must end!
The 28th horse has died at California's Santa Anita Park race track in Arcadia - enough is enough! On Saturday night, Formal Dude had to be euthanized after getting injured during the 10th race of the day. Formal Dude's death comes hot on the heels of River Derby, who had to be euthanized on Thursday after suffering a "catastrophic" shoulder injury during training. Haven't enough horses died?
