That’s a Lot of Dead Horses 

It’s also a lot of euthanasia.

12 horses dying at Churchill Downs in a one month span feels like an awful lot.

Churchill Downs Inc. said in a statement that there has been no common factor linking the fatalities, and testing of the track surface has not revealed any abnormalities.

Maybe it’s just me, but the idea that it might be normal for a dozen horses to be put down in a month seems pretty terrible.
