Santa Anita To Keep Racing Following More Horse Deaths

The group that owns Santa Anita Race Track in Southern California has declined a recommendation from the California Horse Racing Board to suspend the last few days of its' meet after two more horses died there over the weekend.

Twenty-nine horses have died this season, alone, at Santa Anita.

The latest incidents involved a horse which had a heart attack on the track and another which fractured its' pelvis and had to be put down.

The Stronach Group owns Santa Anita and has also rebuffed calls from Democratic California Senator Diane Feinstein to halt racing until all deaths are fully investigated.

Santa Anita's Summer meet ends June 23.
