HBO's 'Luck'

Another Horse Dies on Set

3/14/2012 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There has been another fatal horse accident on the set of the HBO series "Luck" -- a third horse has died, TMZ has learned.

We're told the crew was trying to get a horse out of its stable when it reared and fell back, suffering a head injury.  The horse was euthanized at the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia.

This is the third time a horse had to be euthanized during the filming of the series, starring Dustin Hoffman.

HBO was scrambling after TMZ called 2 hours ago with the story, and the publicist, Karen Jones, stalled us while they got their story together.  In fact, when we told her about our story, she said it wasn't all true -- but it was.

This show is the worst show I have ever seen. Who can understand what any of them are saying? They all mumble and the whole cast needs a good bath and a haircut. The actors should all fall on their heads and let the horses act!

This news is aweful! Please please don;t bring anymore horses on that set! Technology is savy enough to figure something out. Horses belong in wide open pastures with people who love them and know how to take care of them! I hope the show goes off the air! How about a nice donation to a horse rescue facility, that woyuld be really nice of you.

I thought that it said, "Nothing Living Has a Chance" NOT "Leave Nothing To Chance" (personally, I think that my verison is more fitting)

I'll bet they had that jerk in the wheelchair taking care of the horses. Or maybe it was the poker player. I'm so mad, I could rear up and...oh...oh...oh-noooo....(hits head and dies)
