Off to the Races: Feds Indict 14 Cartel Members for Laundering Millions in U.S. Horse Racing

Investments in the drug cartel world apparently know no bounds.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western Texas District announced Tuesday the indictment of 14 members of Mexico’s Los Zetas cartel for laundering money by purchasing, breeding and racing American quarter horses in the U.S.

Those indicted included Los Zetas leader  Miguel Angel Trevino Morales (aka “40”) and his brothers, Oscar Omar  Trevino Morales (aka “42”) and Jose Trevino-Morales, authorities said.

On Tuesday, authorities said they arrested seven of the defendants.

“The allegations in this indictment, if proven, would document yet another example of the corrupting influence of Mexican drug cartels within the United States, facilitated by the enormous profits generated by the illicit drug trade,” U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said in a statement.

The indictment alleges that millions of dollars worth of transactions transpired in New Mexico, Oklahoma, California and Texas involving a large number of quarter horses, and the cartel used front companies to conceal the true ownership.

Having walked through a crowd of people in a beer soaked nightclub wearing ridiculous clothes does not make one a model anymore than decorating a T shirt makes one a designer. Of course, not every local show is abysmal; every now and then there is magic on the runway, but those instances are few and far between, and those shows are either not open to the public or they come with a very stiff ticket price.
