  1. We must SHUT DOWN THE BUSINESS OF HORSE RACING — Because these majestic animals are treated cruelly prior and throughout their careers AND do NOT have a voice, we humans MUST protect them — to think they get abandoned and/or murdered during AND after their racing years — this is unconscionable and cruel, it’s depravedly indifferent, immoral, merciless, cowardly, irrational, shameful AND — it MUST be ILLEGAL! — Moreover, these beautiful animals who do so much for us humans in so many capacities MUST be revered and honored — I repeat, we must SHUT DOWN THE BUSINESS OF HORSE RACING.
