Los Alamitos, Calif. – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo concerning the demise of the 2-year-old colt Rapacious right this moment at Los Alamitos Race Course:
Bob Baffert’s identify has turn out to be synonymous with scandal and carnage. He has simply returned to racing, and a horse’s physique is already being hauled away. Rapacious was simply 2 years previous and hadn’t even raced but, however we are able to count on Baffert’s normal set of excuses. California officers should search and settle for nothing lower than the whole reality, and so they should launch it publicly. They could additionally attempt to clarify how somebody whose profession is affected by so many lifeless horses continues to be allowed to set foot on a racetrack.
