  1. A cesspool of death all for dimes, and dollars.
    Abhorrent antiquated business that needs to die in the dirt just like the racehorses.

  2. It breaks my heart — someone MUST do something about this — abolish ALL drugs altogether, for starters — abolish abusing horses — BEGIN to care for them and respect them — launch Sanctuaries throughout the country so horses IMMEDIATELY receive proper care. — WHERE do we begin !! — the brutality, the unconscionable cruelty to horses MUST STOP!
