  1. How can any moral, sane, and compassionate person look at this picture and say that this is okay?
    How can anybody justify the daily maiming and/or dying of racehorses as okay?
    This is NOT OKAY.
    This is a horror show, and it is utterly unacceptable that, in the 21st century, we continue with this Romanesque, antiquated business model that is financially supported by taxpayers or corporate welfare!
    This poor racehorse, with its fetlock joint and supporting structures shattered, waiting for the needle or for any type of relief.
    VILE, and anybody who supports this carnage by participating or deriving income from this are vile as well.
    Horse racing has the 3 C’s: cruelty, corruption, carnage.
    There’s another “C” word that is appropriate for these racehorse exploiters, but I will refrain from saying it out of respect for the racehorses.
    So sorry for all racehorses who are defenseless victims of these morally corrupt apologists.

  2. My Sweet Emma confirmed by owners as deceased
    Spoke with KenjiIsLucky trainer- no injuries horse is alive
