  1. I didn’t know where my comment would fit so I put it here.
    While racehorses are dying on tracks and on the slaughterhouse floor Sheik Maktoum spends – get this –
    $18,940,000 on 22 yearlings at Keeneland this past week.
    While children and animals are starving on this planet this egotistical asshole spends this kind of money.
    Sure he has a right to spend it where he wants, but this is pathetic, and disgusting.
    Among many of his spending habits he exploited, abused, and killed young boys from poverty-stricken families to ride camels for bets – no kidding!

    I watched the 1 hour television special sponsored by anti-poverty groups throughout the world who were finally able to expose this pathetic human being for what he was doing to young boys many of whom were maimed at the ripe old age of 10 to ride camels at his track in Dubai while they were being beaten to get on the camel.
    Stolen from their families or forced to be sold by their families this idiot decides to do this – not anything good for their souls or for their lives just exploitation to the max for his personal, and his friends gambling habits – this is what this fucking vile rich asshole did.
    These are the kinds of people that the horse racing industry welcomes with open arms.

    Incidentally, he pays for First Class flights, hotels, meals and whatever else for the connections of racehorses who go down and run at his track for the big races.
    People like Bob and Jill Baffert who supposedly loves children, but I’m sure as hell that they never brought this up, and called this child abuser out for what he is.
    Protecting our children and animals (the 2 most vulnerable sectors of our society) is a global COMMUNAL responsibility.
    One would have to wonder what in the hell else he does that we don’t know of since he spent millions covering this story up and was able to do so for a long time due to the disadvantage of these children, their families, and the groups who helped save them.

    Now if he does this to children you can only imagine what they do to the camels and racehorses when they are done with them.
    Apparently, they are set on fire in a big burn pile while still alive.
    If I happen to survive this vile human being on this planet I will make sure somebody spits on his grave.

    • Follow-up.
      Here’s the Full Documentary.

      At 2:48 minutes into the documentary there’s Sheik Maktoum watching the young boys ride the camels.
      It’s only when they got caught, after it took years of human rights and anti-poverty groups to have them ban it.
      I watched the release of the film here in Canada.
      Canadians and others risked their lives to expose this vile situation.
      Now I would like to pose a question to the CEO’s of Keeneland such as multimillionairess Barbara Banke.
      Ms. Banke: how would you like your grandchildren to be stolen from you, forced onto a camels back and get decapitated so that ultra rich Sheiks can enjoy the “entertainment” and “gambling?”
      Perhaps you can send them back on Maktoum’s private jet for a little camel riding?
      Just saying.
      If you cared anything about children you would release a strong statement opposing his actions and give him his dirty money back.
      That would be a little too moral for this business and the people in it.

    • What they all have in common is the love of money, power and ego gratification. They use, abuse and kill the voiceless and vulnerable. Very few will even attempt to expose and bring these people to justice – they are too rich and therefore too powerful.

      • Absolutely Rose.
        This documentary “Desert Riders” has so many parallels to horse racing.
        In this case it’s children and camels that are being exploited, mangled, beaten, neglected, and dying.
        I’m grateful to the individuals that finally exposed, and brought an end to these horrific child human rights violations.
        Supporters of this blog are exposing this vile business and the vile people in it.
