Racetrack Abandoned and Horses Put Down. 2005-11-29
What happens in Beijing, China when racetracks close? Most people may not want to know. The track may get sold, but the horses don�t.
The horses aren�t worth much afterwards, and so the decision comes what to do with them. In this particular case, a racetrack was closed it October, and 600 Thoroughbreds were left without a home. When there weren�t homes that could be found for them, they had not choice, but to put them out of their miseries.
They were administered lethal injections; it was to be as simple and as painless as possible. Of the horse 400 were thoroughbred mares, and 200 were females. They are just a percentage of the 2,000 horses in Beijing.
Kevin Connolly, racing director at Beijing racecourse, confirmed that this had already taken place, but it wasn�t unusual. This is typical of an end-of-season harvest practice. It�s sad, but it is the tradition is a country against pari-mutuel wagering.
