40 thoroughbred racehorses in Charlestown WV raced to the ultimate finish line in a horsemeat cookoff.
From Fox here:
A fire overnight killed dozens of horses near Charles Town Races. Three barns caught fire around 4:41 a.m.
The barns are privately owned, but the horses stabled there do race at the track.
Thirty-eight of the dead horses were in one barn, two in another. A third barn was damaged.
I had 10 bucks on horse 18 to fry first. He didn’t place in the top dozen. That’s ten bucks I’ll never get back.
