  2. South Carolina is having their Camden Cup race/s today, April 2, 2022. The information is on the internet.
    Georgia has some races. Any flat track or steeplechase racing in these states would be a time and a place to cause harm and INJURIES to the horses.

      • Nancy, there is a place on the map in Camden, South Carolina called the National Steeplechase Museum. There is no doubt that steeplechase racing is deliberate abuse of horses. They demand way too much of the horses!
        It’s a social event like gladiator fighting was centuries ago.

  3. Hey Patrick, thanks for this very sad update.
    Just wondering – are you planning on getting the racehorse deaths from Ontario Canada?
    I know you’ve done it before and I heard that there were lots of deaths at Woodbine Racetrack last year that were deliberately covered-up so the public wouldn’t know.
    The politicians in Ontario do everything they can to abet and assist Woodbine in their death cover-ups despite the fact they preach the opposite.
    Of course when we finally got the 4 pages of deaths last year they were horrific and they are supposed to be posting these deaths on the Ontario Gaming and Alcohol Commission website which is a public governmental agency that is supposed to adhere to our Freedom of Information Access laws.
    Horse racing in Ontario has been supported by hundreds of millions in taxpayers money for years with our politicians going as far as giving them 50 million per year to breed racehorses.
    They know that NONE of the younger generation here will ever go into horse racing and that any newcomers are so minimum that it will never be enough to replace the aging demographics and those who are dying.
    Yet, they continue the never, ending money pit to horse racing – the same old broken record year in and year out.
    Anyways, just wondering what your thoughts are on this?
