Santa Anita track to stay open despite more deaths

Santa Anita track to stay open despite more deaths The owners of Santa Anita racetrack rejected calls to suspend horse racing at the course on Monday as the equine death toll at the facility rose to 29 after two more fatalities. Animal rights groups have led calls for Santa Anita's closure, with some arguing that the unusually high death toll demanded an outright ban of horse racing. "Santa Anita averages 50 dead horses a year. It is business as usual," said Heather Wilson, an advocate for Horseracing Wrongs, a New York- based nonprofit that is working to eradicate horse racing in the US. "The general public must understand that horse racing kills horses at every single track.

The California Horse Racing Board has recommended that the track suspend the remaining days of its meet, which is set to end June 23. However, Santa Anita management has chosen to continue racing.

The racing board doesn't have the authority to suspend a race meet or remove race dates from a current meet without the approval of the track operator or without holding a public meeting that requires 10 days' notice.

The CHRB recommended that Santa Anita suspend racing but allow horses to continue training, believing it would provide the industry extra time to fully implement announced safety initiatives.

"It is our understanding that Santa Anita management, after consultation with certain other industry stakeholders, believes that for a variety of reasons, the future of California racing is best served by continuing to race," the racing board said in a statement.

In providing Santa Anita 10 days' notice, the CHRB may be able to shut down the track for the last three days of the meet.

Santa Anita has enacted a series of reforms aimed at improving safety, but despite its efforts and a six-week stretch in which no horses died at the Arcadia track, more deaths have occurred.

"Either the rules aren't strong enough or the rules aren't being followed, but whatever the reason for the deaths of two more horses, Santa Anita needs to listen to the California Horse Racing Board and shut down," said Kathy Guillermo, senior vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Santa Anita is scheduled to host the Breeders' Cup world championships Nov. 1-2.
