No More Luck for HBO Amidst Horse Deaths
Luck has not been a lady on the set of the HBO series of the same name. Unfortunately, accidents on the set of Luck have made it difficult for the show to continue.
The series put Hollywood heavy weights Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte into a team up starting last December, along with Dennis Farina and Richard Kind. It revolves around the goings on of the Santa Anita racetrack in Los Angeles. However, as THR reports, there have been three horse deaths related to the filming of the series.
The second season was filming on Tuesday when the third, and likely final horse was injured. The animal reportedly “reared, flipped over backward and struck her head on the ground.”
Accidents like these happen when dealing with large animals. Executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann released statements full of regret, but overall reflecting a positive attitude about the show and the cast and crew.
They said, “While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen, and it is impossible to guarantee they won’t in the future. Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision.” That decision was one to close down production, despite being “immensely proud of this series”.
The vet, Heidi Agnic went to work very quickly, but it was deemed best to have the animal put down. Two horses were similarly hurt and then euthanized during production of season one.
