LTE on Golden Gate: “I want this place shut down.”

The following letter appeared yesterday in both the East Bay Times and The San Jose Mercury News. It illustrates, yet again, how much the younger generations get it.

I’m a recent 18-year-old. I’ve lived near Golden Gate Fields my whole life. Until recently, I did not know the cruelty that occurred there. Yesterday, the horse “Big Laugh” was reported to have died. More than a dozen other horses did too in 2022. I’ve lived 18 years with this archaic stain dotting our waterfront. I don’t want concessions. I want this place shut down. The longer it remains, the more lives will be lost for nothing.

Thank you, Jacob.

  1. Fortunately, he represents so many, many, young people who are serious animal advocates. I taught at two-year college for many years, and believe me, the majority of young people do not tolerate animal abuse. It gives me hope that horse racing doesn’t stand a chance.

    • Kelly – Frank & Belinda Stronach Worry About Each Other Money, But What About The Horses?

      • Oh, I think they worry about the horses, too…
        As in, “Gosh, Daddy. I’m really worried how much trickier it’s gotten to hide all these dead horses from the public! Good thing we’ve got the CHRB and the racing press on our side.”
