HBO Ends 'Luck' After Horse Deaths

HBO has ended its Dustin Hoffman drama series in the wake of three deaths of horses during filming.

I wonder what could possibly be going wrong that the horses have been dying. That is so sad. I think they are some of the most beautiful animals in the world.

I wonder what exactly happened to the horses.

it is possible that the horses were drugged, 3 deaths in a short period of time is unusual, i dont think they were treated properly. but then again the article says that the show isnt grossing so well in the ratings so it may be the real reason why they cancelled the show. although horse racing is always entertaining i loved the movies secretariat and seabiscuit.
