Through a FOIA request to the Indiana Horse Racing Commission, I have confirmed the following 23 deaths on or at Indiana tracks in 2015. The document, however, came with this: “As was the case in your request last year, please be advised that the names of the horses have been redacted as confidential pursuant to IC 38-1-4-5.5.” (Unless otherwise noted, fatal injury was a leg/foot fracture of one kind or another.)
