As an earlier poster said,there are plenty of vets to take care of horses on the grounds.As to the Penn situation,you get what you pay for.It is the same situation,as at many minor league venues,the people are there for a reason,because they cannot cut it the bigs.
Yes but even at Los Al where bottome claimers race there is a vet during traning.At our fairs also their is a vet.
Just because they are bottom horses is NO excuse for the tracks not to be obligated.Horses still deserve to be treated with dignity and not to be treated inhumane. Horse laying on the track for an hour to be put down is inhumane.
I may have cheap horses but they are cared for like they are racing at Keenland and Delmar.

Ferndale has some of the sorriest horses you could see on a race track, but there is always a vet.  Some terrible thing like what happened in Penn would never happen in Ferndale.  When a horse goes down, it is immediately surrounded by the owner, the vet and anyone who wants to help make the decision about the horse's condition.

So does Fresno and Stockton so I dont get the mentality just cause they are bottom of the barrle then their is NO obligation by the race track .
By the way Pammy I have not heard from Penn.

Guess they are going to ignore us all.  That can only mean one thing.  They know what they did was wrong.

You would probably have better luck sending your letters to the Pa. Racing Commission. Penn National cares nothing about horses or racing, and has not since they got their first slots at Charles Town..

I always tried to tell people slots are the surest and fastest way to shut horses out. Now dont you think they new this was going to raise holy hell and maybe this is the kind of situations they maybe looking for to actually say horse racing just isnt worth the effort?
some one post the email address for Pa racing board please.

Only licensed vets can have needles, or any injectable, on the racetrack.  Has nothing to do with being afraid, it is not allowed at any racetrack anywhere.

EVERY trainer knows how to handle a needle......for that matter ANYONE who has been an outrider has also used a needle......i know the rules but my point is the rules are stupid.
