Protesting the Preakness

Horseracing Wrongs will of course be out in full force tomorrow at Pimlico Race Course, protesting not only the Preakness Stakes but the entire cruel, ugly U.S. horseracing industry. In advance of that, we purchased a largescale advertising campaign: 125 48×72 posters strategically placed around the city of Baltimore. Here’s a sampling, with our Maryland Coordinator (and board member), Jennifer Sully:

  1. FORTE was scratched from the Kentucky Derby and was said to have been scratched for 14 days making him ineligible to run in the Preakness.
    According to the racing press publication, the Paulick Report, FORTE is likely to run in the Preakness. The vile and vomit-worthy words spoken by the trainer, Todd Pletcher, say that the horse is happy. There is a picture of the horse and he doesn’t look happy. He looks subdued. This is his lot in life: to be exploited to the point of painful injuries and drugged, doped, medicated and over-medicated and with the counsel of an attorney, all those violations and the abuse of this horse are dismissed to the point of the horse is so “happy” and now he can do what these vile, horse-killing monsters say that the horse loves to do — to run; and implying that the horse is so privileged to be allowed to run in the Preakness after being deprived of running in the Derby. This is what is implied by the vomit-worthy words spoken by Todd Pletcher; that the horse loves to run and all that vile, vomit-worthy crapola that only die-hard horse-abusing, horse-doping, horse-killing money-grubbers would say to justify their abuse of horses and their greedy pursuit of money, money, money, money, money, money, and more money AND to hell with humanity and what is right and decent for the horses and for the communities that would benefit from the millions of dollars of subsidy money that could be going to the public good instead of this cesspool of horse abuse and unethical business conduct.

  2. May 20, 2006 Barbaro ran in the Preakness after winning the Derby. He suffered a huge injury that day. RIP beautiful Barbaro.
