2,000 Racehorses Die EACH year racing or training on American tracks. Horseracing is NOT a Sport. Horseracing KILLS! #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

477 horses have been killed at Belmont Park since 2009! Horseracing KILLS Horses! Don’t Watch. Don’t Bet. #BelmontStakes #HorseracingCruelty

Most “retired” American racehorses are bled-out and butchered in foreign abattoirs. One final profit on their heads. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Racehorses are injected w/ various drugs – some legal, some not – with a singular goal: to keep them running, even through pain & injury. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

What happens openly @ the track would qualify as #AnimalCruelty if done to our pets. In what other sport do lashes provide the motivation? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

The typical horse does not reach full musculoskeletal maturity till around 6 years old; the typical racehorse begins “training” @ 18 months & is raced at 2 years old – or the rough equivalent of a kindergartner. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

No more bets, no more races; no more races, no more kills. And – no more abusing unformed bodies; No more maiming, destroying; pain, suffering. NO MORE! #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

24 Horses have been Killed at Belmont Park in 2020. Horseracing KILLS Horses! Don’t Watch. Don’t Bet. #BelmontStakes #HorseracingCruelty

Horseracing a sport? If not for the gravity involved, it would be absurd. No, horseracing is but exploitation of a weaker species for among the most shameful of reasons – $2 bets. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

“Carnage,” as defined by the American Heritage Dictionary, is “large-scale death and destruction.” This is what is happening within the American horseracing industry. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the bodies of adolescent athletes pounded into the ground without remorse? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes kept in tight, solitary confinement for over 23 hours a day? #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes condemned to a life as (literal) chattel? #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes drugged and doped without consent? #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes whipped – beaten – for motivation? #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes routinely dying on the playing field? 2,000 a YEAR! #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In what other sport are the athletes brutally and violently slaughtered upon retirement? #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

To those who trade in equines in the pursuit of cash and fleeting glory, we say: Find a commodity that doesn’t bleed; take up a hobby that can’t cry out in pain. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Horseracing is but exploitation of a weaker species for among the most shameful of reasons – $2 bets. #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

To those who sustain this sordid business, we say: Slake those gambling urges with decidedly inanimate slots and scratch-offs; leave the horses out of it. #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Most racehorses are bought and sold several times over during the course of their “careers” – traded and treated like common Amazon products. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

What happens openly at the track would qualify as animal cruelty if done to our pets. What’s more, in what other sport do lashes provide the motivation? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Horseracing Wrongs @racingwrongs estimates that upward of 2,000 horses die while racing or training on American racetracks annually. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Although the industry downplays the extent of the problem, the prevailing wisdom is that most “retired” American racehorses are bled-out and butchered in foreign abattoirs. One final profit on their heads. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Most active racehorses are kept isolated in small stalls 23 hours a day, making a mockery of the industry claim that their horses are born to run, love to run. No affection, no stimulation – just an existence. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

To those who wager on horseracing, we implore you to reconsider. And ultimately, you hold all the cards – no more bets, no more races; no more races, no more kills. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

In a landscape that abounds with other gambling options – casinos, lotteries, real sports involving autonomous human beings – hasn’t the time at long last arrived to let the racing horse be? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

Maiming and destruction of racehorses is inherent to the industry. Death at the track is, always has been, and always will be an inevitable part of racing. #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

How they die: Lady Angel: “collapsed while training with copious amount of blood coming out of both nostrils” #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

How they die: Greatwhite Buffalo: “both front fetlocks attached by skin only, leaving the distal cannon bones exposed, covered with ground-in dirt and severe bruising; gastric ulcers quite extensive” #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

The Death of a Racehorse: Tempting Eyes: “horse caught reins in rail and snapped neck” #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

How they Die: Cool It: “euthanasia due to shock from large laceration with arterial bleeding” #EndHorseracingNOW #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

If horseracing is a sport, then that word must be redefined, for the competitive racing of horses resembles no other accepted sport on the planet. In what other sport are: THE BODIES OF ADOLESCENT ATHLETES POUNDED INTO THE GROUND WITHOUT REMORSE? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes

If horseracing is a sport, then that word must be redefined, for the competitive racing of horses resembles no other accepted sport on the planet. In what other sport are: THE ATHLETES KEPT IN TIGHT, SOLITARY CONFINEMENT FOR OVER 23 HOURS A DAY? #HorseracingCruelty #BelmontStakes
