Description

After witnessing a horse pull up lame while at the racetrack, reporter John Tedesco overheard a security guard noting that the horse would likely be "put down." Spurred by this, Tedesco researched how often racehorses suffer this tragic fate, and discovered more than just statistics. The story details how "performance-enhancing medications, both legal and illegal, are routinely administered to the majestic animals."
