Standardbred Harness-Horse Fatalities

New York State Gaming Commission’s Equine Breakdown, Death, Injury and Incident Database reports 29 racing and 6 nonracing deaths this year, as of June 7, 2016. Of the 29 racing deaths, 10 are harness horses (34.5%). We don’t know the statistics for other tracks or if New York might reflect the frequency of Standardbred fatalities across the country.
