  1. I just read a petition in my mailbox that was for an 11 year old beagle who was kicked to death by a man, it went on to say, it is a FELONY punishable by a few years in PRISON. Well cripes, these people in this meat grinder industry (horse racing), KILL innocent horses EVERY damn day. Why are they not in jail, charged with Multiple FELONIES?!!!

  2. I’m sure you’ve read it already Patrick, Newsday,Long Island’s newspaper where Belmont is located ….surprise, is of course,for the renovation of Belmont . Their reason “it will draw more people to come”🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Keep dreaming. There is no way that’s happening. Must be calming to live with your head in the clouds😁😂🤣.
