A racing truth: The kill-machine is never idle. Yesterday, Monday, one of the two lightest days of the U.S. Racing week, yet another hapless horse lost his life in the pursuit of handle cash. Salty’s Hero, four, “broke down and fell near the far turn” of the 9th race at Parx – “humanely euthanized” (Equibase). Dead.

This is horseracing.
