After 75 years of some of the best racing in America, nobody wanted to see Hollywood Park close. Knowing this weekend will be its last, they should have put on a show to be remembered by. Gone out with a bang, give fans one last good memory of them. Instead, as fans watch a 10 year old, ex-Breeders’...Read More

  • Ruffianlover · I was shocked too Sullivan. robably the only one but I had to vote for Paynter. For him to come back after what he went through. Even though he couldn't get back to what he was- the fact that he returned to any racing form at all is nothing short of amazing. He definitely deserves it. Not saying others don't. But Paynter definitely deserves my vote. · 152 days ago ·
  • AndyScoggin · I think it more important for people to put their energy and money towards the retirement programs for horses like Monzante. The Vox Populi Award is not going to help get more horses safely retired. Vote for whoever you'd like, but at the same time you should be giving your time and/or money to help! · 150 days ago ·
Monzante was passed from owner to owner, and trainer to trainer many times. He was passed down until there was no place else to go but where he ended up at Evangeline Downs last night. Didn’t Monzante deserve better? Doesn’t the next Monzante deserve better? Read More

  • CynthiaKendrick · July 25, 2013 I had to wait a few days to begin this letter, the emotions were too raw and the anger to intense. Monzante’s death was very personal to me. I am one of those that believed in Maria’s Mon as a sire, before it was ‘cool’ to do so. I used to laugh with other horsemen how about how underappreciated his prodigy were. Then the Derby win, followed by Awesome Maria and of course Monzante. Scouring catalogs for his offspring is my hobby and I am blessed with his mares that are sound, noble and exhibit his stature in the paddock when I visit. All horsemen follow selected horses on computer programs to watch work times and progress, or digression that follows, I watched Monzante. I watched him fall thought the claiming ranks, always thinking, surely someone was waiting to snatch him up as a loved and appreciated riding companion. I am at fault for being too consumed in my own career that I did not give him that home. On July 30th, I opened my Equibase report and my heart was broken. Frantic, I reached out to all my contacts, how in God’s name was he allowed to run at this level and this happen? Those of us, who love these animals are horrified that this champion was allowed to be numbed and run until had to be put to death. Where were the horsemen at trackside, surely not at his stall? If the vets cleared him, then what criteria and qualifications do those supposed medical professionals live by? This trainer and I dare not spit while going into this segment, stated, he numbed an eight centimeter square area in Monzante’s leg PRIOR to racing him, please tell me why? Better yet, those of you at home reading this, which of you would allow your trainer to inject a bad leg and then race your horse? If you are permitting this as owners, I am truly crushed. I grew up in Kentucky with many of you riding bareback through the back fields. It is now time to say, stop, we own the trainers, they do not own us. These horses are our companions, our friends and our heritage. We were all raised on a code of ethics, this supposed trainer and industry leach, will never understand or expect. But, Monzante did.

Jackie Thacker states he made the decision to euthanize Monzante because it was apparent that he was suffering. Money wasn't so much the concern as it was having to see Monzante suffer... according to the article in Bloodhorse.
RIP Monzante

  • yukichan · Why his trainer still had a license is beyond comprenhension. The sport needs to hold each other to a higher level of accountability. There are more Jackie's out there and therefore more Monzante's out there. A national regulatory body for the industry would create some standard. Until then, Louisiana needs to do better. · 272 days ago ·
  • jonquil · Yukichan, you're free to come to Louisiana and lay down the law. Unfortunately, Louisiana is inadequate in practically every field of horse safety when it comes to horse racing and that's largely because they don't have the funding because they pretty much all got taken over and turned into racinos. It can get downright skeevy. However the only locals I know involved in horse racing train horses at their farms here and send them off to start a racing career outside of Louisiana. It's not totally bleak and all, but things are definitely in very poor shape and have been for some time. Stuff like this is why I focus more on European/Japanese/Australian races. Poor Monzante.
