  1. So many of these young developing horses are sacrificed for a corrupt gambling business and nobody in the business, regardless of what they say, cares about the carnage. Only the very tough survive and they are “rewarded” with a trip to the slaughterhouse.
    How can anyone who is a fan or is involved in racing truly respect and care about these beautiful animals ? The short and only answer is they can’t.

  2. Patrick, i hope you don’t mind me putting this up but it’s been a devastating 24 hours here with the death of a 12 year old jumps horse called Rabbuka who i used to watch racing in Sydney, i just adored this horse, he began racing as a 2 year old and had been racing for 9 years. I think he would’ve been okay up here in the flats but a change of hands literally killed him because a jumps trainer got him and raced him to his death.
