Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo regarding the death today of Nobel following the fifth race. Nobel is the 13th horse to die at Saratoga Race Course during this season:

Let Nobel be the last horse to die at Saratoga this year, and shut the track down now. PETA urged NYRA to suspend racing last week until real safety measures could be put in place, but greed triumphed over compassion, and now a 13th horse lies dead at the Saratoga “slaughterhouse.” Today, on Travers Day, the racing industry has shown once again that it’s fine with killing horses, even at its biggest events. HISA must hold NYRA accountable and immediately shutter this track.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
