  1. The horror story for these innocent noble animals continues…..whilst people place $2 bets and watch these horses suffer and die for their ‘entertainment’.

  2. This is horrific. Come on, humans! BE BETTER THAN THIS!! What kind of sick mind gets enjoyment from betting on an animals pain and death?! It’s just barbaric. People need to learn how to have compassion and how to be KIND.
    I am so sorry sweet, innocent animals.

  3. Truly a horrific industry. They pretend to LOVE their horses but what the racing industry actually loves is the MONEY these horses are DYING trying to earn.
    Shut them down !!
