  1. I was given a book “Saving Baby” by Martha Mooney Waltien, who is an active demonstrator in NY. It opened my eyes to the cruelties of horse racing and lack of empathy towards those magnificent creatures. I was totally engrossed in that book that opened my eyes and educated me about that venue. As an animal lover, I wish you success in your endeavors.

    • Jo Anne Normile is the author of the book, SAVING BABY, in case anyone didn’t already know that.
