  1. Thank you Patrick. But for you, the names of these beautiful horses would be forgotten. I appreciate your deep and abiding commitment to be a voice for those who can no longer be heard.

  2. Yes Susan, I too am so grateful to Patrick for Horseracing Wrongs. Without this, we would never know these horses’ names, never know they shared this earth with us. I never miss reading HW….it is so distressing, but the sadness and discomfort I feel is nothing compared to what they’ve endured. We owe them this, at the very least.
