The 9th at Monmouth yesterday, as relayed by Equibase: “Ilchester Cheetah was bumped after the start, raced off the pace, injured on the turn, pulled up and was euthanized.” That’s it – an intelligent, sensitive, fully-sentient being’s life snuffed, and summed in 20 cold, harsh words. Horseracing is ugly and cruel and mean. Horseracing is murder, on a daily basis. This red stain must be forever scrubbed from our national landscape. Now.
