  1. Utterly disgusting.
    DIXIE TWISTER – trainer Michael J Maker (Mike Maker) a MULTIPLE drug violating trainer who has MULTIPLE racehorses DIE under his direct care.
    He appeals every single drug positive, and true to horse racing form gets slaps on the wrist in many cases.
    Trains or trained for the Queen of racehorse dumping Maggi Moss.
    Supporters of this business constantly blame animal rights activist, blogs like this for racehorses dying.
    They are 100% delusional right down to the slime on their gums.
    The main reason why racehorses are dying is because of the LIBERAL DRUG POLICIES that result in doping cocktails being shoved into these horses to mask their chronic pain and/or push them beyond their natural ability resulting in maiming and/or death.
    Even worse, these multiple drug violating trainers NEVER get suspended for LIFE to keep them away from a racehorse, to keep them from doing this.
    It’s like handing a drunk driver the keys to your car!
    The drugs are now bred into the racehorse, most likely, which probably contributes to poisoning the gene pool resulting in a weaker foal to begin with.
    It’s all coming to roost now!
    Of course the dying has been going on for a very long time, but it’s this blog that is now exposing the figures, and they are horrific!
