A friend of mine with connections to the race track called my yesterday. Guess what? Another Thoroughbred who was suppose to have a "forever" home wound up at the feed lot. She didn't even bother to take her to the auction first. Guess who the "forever" home was suppose to be with? The same person who sold Denali at the auction. That puts the total to 5 horses that I know of, and I don't even know that many people!! Ophelia was one, Denali, a Vet, and two Jockeys. Tell me this? If they KNOW she's doing it then why is it that everyone at Emerald Downs continues to go about their business and pretend like nothing happens? I HATE HER! I wonder how many horses have gone to slaughter thanks to her? The best part of the whole situation? Her husband is a jockey and she is his manager! I'm not one to out names on here, that's not the reason for this blog. It's for me to ramble... http://www.emeralddowns.com/?cat=6&id=2070&type=news Opps?! I'm not sure how THAT got there! Denali must have gotten on her "Pony PC" at the barn.
I wrote a letter to Emerald Downs about her, I posted it here last April. No one contacted me back, but I didn't think they would. When I got Denali, her trainer was SO nice. He invited me down and showed me around the track just so I wouldn't think that everyone is evil, and he was right, not everyone is evil. BUT the fact that she KEEPS DOING IT and nothing is done about it really upsets me. SHE is EVIL! When you take the horse STRAIGHT TO THE FEED LOT you aren't even giving it a chance. Those horses are what give you a job. You don't even have the decency to try to give them a life? What else frustrates me is that owners give her their horses, they have to know what she's doing with them!! Those that know and still do it are equally guilty in my book. Shame on you! It is people like you that make give racing such a bad name!
