  1. For the sake of entertainment these animals suffered horribly and were murdered. Every single person involved in any way is a party to this and guilty.Rot in Hell.

  2. Oh this poor innocent horse! Hind legs spread to help him a bit to stay upright, his off fore leg broken, probably a collapsed suspensory apparatus, probably fractured sesamoids, his once athletic leg all smashed up. Been doing his best, galloping at fast speed on a muddy track surface, his herd gone no longer in the comfort and safety of his mates, rider not about, a couple of blokes getting the saddle off him, mud all over his body, his face and likely in his eyes. How would he be feeling?
    Oh I think we know the answer to that.
    At the very least he would be in excruciating pain, in fear, in shock and suffering terrible trauma.

    And the horseracing industry thinks that this is okay?

    Well it certainly seems so, because these catastrophic breakdowns resulting in death for so many horses are virtually a daily occurrence.

  3. This vile business takes away their limbs and life with no repercussions, and they are so demented that they go back the very next day to do the exact same thing.
    All for stupid $2 bets and/or human ego.
    The precipitous decline of this horrific business is well on the way, but it’s not coming soon enough for the racehorses.
    They need our voices more now than ever.
