An update on Hear Me Purr:
Yesterday, the 4-year-old was raced for the 6th time in a little over 5 weeks – 11th time in 13 weeks. And the result was no different than the rest: 7th of 8, 25+ lengths back. Trainer Randi Persaud is running this horse into the ground.
For those interested, Florida’s (all 11 races have been at Gulfstream) animal-cruelty statute reads in part: “A person who unnecessarily overloads, overdrives, torments…any animal…commits animal cruelty, a misdemeanor of the first degree…”
