Third Horse Died on HBO's "Luck" Set

Posted: March 14th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Third Horse Died on HBOSubmit Comment
Despite still being in first season, HBO's "Luck" horse-racing TV series, starring Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, has been having a bit of trouble keeping its horses alive. After having two of them die during production, PETA wrote a letter to LA District Attorney, asking for an investigation of the set.

No immediate action was taken, and then the very next day, a third horse died. "All the evidence we have gathered points to sloppy oversight, the use of unfit, injured horses, and disregard for the treatment of race horses," said PETA, which is asking for filming to stop.

HBO responded by stating: "An American Humane Association Certified Safety Representative was on the premises when the accident occurred, and as always, all safety precautions were in place."

The title of the show is almost as Ironic as Lindsey Lohan starring in the Parent Trap.

Horse, dog, cat, who gives a sh*t? PETA would probably shoot them if they had to clean out the stables everyday. When will they ever learn that animals are meant to be slaughtered, eaten and worn. Who else would we have climbed to the top of the food chain? I'd loved to have seen a PETA caveman. Shivering and emaciated, chomping on acorns. Natural selection would have sorted them out.

lol @pornfly.

This is just lower budget accounting. They didn't leave enough $'s for craft services, and budgeted too much on horses. So, when they want to have lunch with meat in it, they kill a horse. I've seen it a 100 times.

'Looks like Jews live forever.'

Nazi's would beg to differ.

"the use of unfit, injured horses"

That was my first thought: money. They're using 'unfit' horses to reduce production costs.

Of course they were, that's why you have 3 dead horses. lol

Kickin in a few a extra bucks to get top notch horses wouldve saved them money in the long run
Cutting corners comes with alot of risk
Also i would think they would want 'top of their game'horses so avid riders would have something to watch and/or critique
I think HBO has a reputation for being notoriously cheap when it comes to their 'talent'

Obviously, they know horsesh*t in horse's well being! So, can we expect some frontal nude's from Eva MENDES after this? Or Kate UPTON, Sofia VERGARA or at least...Raquel WELCH? C'mon, do something posistive about the horses for God sake!

Three dead horses and hbo went ahead and cancelled the show. It was a f*cking boring show anyway.
