On Monday, the California Legislature approved a bill to give the California Horse Racing Board the power to move or suspend racing events without giving a ten day heads-up period.
The bill is a result of the spike in horse racing deaths at Santa Anita Park. It has yet to be signed into law by Governor Newsom, but he has signaled his support.
We look back at horse death numbers through the years -- how significant is this recent spike? How will this rule change impact horse racing in California? And should horse racing go the way of dog fighting?

We reached out to the California Horse Racing Board. They are not doing interviews until Governor Newsom signs SB 469.
