Three year old gelding “No New Friends” was killed while racing at Pleasanton on 6.30.2019. This horse was up for sale (in claiming races) for practically his entire so-called career.
He has the honorable distinction of being the first racehorse fatality after some useless legislation passed, meant to protect horses. It has in fact, done NOTHING.
SB469 was signed into law just 4 days prior to the fateful race of No New Friends. Countless horses have continued to suffer and die in California.
