The NEWS4 I-Team in Washington, DC uncovered a staggering number of horse deaths at a major thoroughbred racing track in the area. Using never before seen video, surveillance and exclusive interviews the investigation gave viewers an inside look at the dark side of horse racing. The series led to new state regulations and Congressional reaction of what's known as the "Sport of Kings". The digital timeline we created of the deaths from 2014-2016 also became a reference guide for the public and stakeholders in the industry.
