  1. This is outrageous!!!
    Any human being with just a smidgen of respect for animals, God’s living creatures, would find this horrific cruelty utterly unacceptable. And the industry has the audacity to call it a sport whilst wiping its blood stained hands.

    This IS horseracing folks. Forget about the famous racedays with all the hype on high profile horses, their trainers and owners, the glamour, the delicious food, the big party atmosphere and the hats.

    The sickening facts that Patrick Battuello provides on this blog is the reality of everyday horseracing throughout the nation.

  2. Please shut down this cruelty circus, and death camp.
    It has no place in the 21st century.
    To all the people who attend the peaceful demonstration today – I wish you all the best.
    If it wasn’t so far – I would have attended.
    Instead I’m relegated to commenting on this blog.
    Thanks everybody for all you do.

  3. There were 3 killed at the track where California Chrome is supposed to race at as well. Within 15 minutes 3 horses were euthanized from broken bones. Sickening.
