  1. These apologists, supporters, and participators are human parasitic leeches.
    This list is a reflection of a modern day death camp, legitimized widespread massive suffering of sentient beings all for fancy hats, and $2 bets.
    There are no amount of jobs that justifies this utter unconscionable bloodbath – none.
    So sorry for all racehorses who were maimed by these pathetic, morally bankrupt people.

  2. Horseracing is the only enterprise where cheating and cruelty are rewarded and criminals operate as legitimate business people.
