Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) renewed her call for a moratorium on horse racing at Santa Anita following the 26th death of a horse since the current meet began on Dec. 26.
“Another horse has died at Santa Anita Race Track, the 26th in five months and the third in just nine days,” Feinstein said in a statement May 27. “How many more horses must die before concrete steps are taken to address what is clearly an acute problem?
“I once again call for an immediate moratorium on racing at Santa Anita. We need a thorough investigation of practices and conditions at the track before any more races are held.”
Several national news outlets reported that Kochees was euthanized Sunday after breaking down in the sixth race at the Southern California track on Saturday, May 25.
