  1. I’m so glad that I have been made aware of this situation. I can’t believe the slaughter that is going on in this country. “War Horse” was only one example of how we have tortured equines throughout the centuries. Why must man destroy the natural world at every opportunity.

  2. Horse racing is unnecessary pain, and suffering just for a lousy $2 bet.
    It’s so vile, and disgusting what’s going on here.
    I patiently wait for the day that the state of California kicks both SeaWorld, and horse racing out of there.
    The animal loving state of California, and the residents therein, should call for a total ban on horse racing.
    It’s legitimized animal cruelty – period.
    Surely we can do better than this in the 21st century.
    Leave the greyhounds, and the horses out of the gambling equation once and for all.
    The carnage is so vile.
    This is a modern day blood bath.
    So sorry for all racehorses on this list who lost their life for a stupid bet.
    This has got to stop, and it will only stop when people stop patronizing it.
