  1. All of this suffering caused by the human beings in horseracing in addition to the cruel practice of keeping the horses confined to stalls for 23 hours a day is abuse and brutality against horses.
    Horses are going stir crazy in their box stalls for 23 hours a day and then this horrendous CRUELTY is added to their pain and suffering. A lot of these horses most likely won’t be returned to their stalls. They’ll be dead instead of being returned to their stalls.

  2. Unadulterated carnage and corruption guaranteed by the millions in public subsidies.
    It all needs to END.
