Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo and the video regarding the death on Saturday of New York Thunder in the ninth race. Nobel died after the fifth race. New York Thunder is the 14th horse to die at Saratoga Race Course during this season:

We want everyone to see the second gruesome killing at Saratoga Race Course on Travers Day. PETA was filming at the track and captured New York Thunder’s shattered bone and his horrifying attempt to run, his lower leg dangling. Officials got the screen up quickly to block the public’s view, but not before everyone at the track saw the carnage. Everyone who sees this video will agree that racing must not be allowed to continue at Saratoga.

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.
