About the Horses
Please join us in honoring Thoroughbreds who have given their lives on tracks around the world
throughout horseracing history. Through independent research and visitor submissions,
thousands of horses are listed, yet the Memorial only scratches the surface of the true death toll.
Each horse is a registered Thoroughbred who suffered an injury on the track in training, racing,
a prerace or
postrace incident on race day, or a medical or postsurgery complication from the injury
to death or euthanization. Every fatality is confirmed with a published source.
Visitors are welcome to submit a horse to the Memorial:

Remember the racehorses
Soldiers fall victim
to the casualties of war,
and so do the racehorses.
They battle to the finish line,
but some are wounded
and some do not return.
For this reason . . .

When you click through the wreath above to the Memorial,
you will find these spreadsheets:
Racehorses unknown but not forgotten
on the Memorial when a source reports a racehorse fatality
but does not disclose the horse's name for whatever reason.
There is a touch of divinity even in brutes, and a special halo about a horse
that should forever exempt him from indignities.
