  1. Death after death after death!

    The horror story continues for these innocents for the sake of human entertainment, greed and gambling.

    Makes me ashamed to be a human being.

  2. Not acceptable. Expose and close! Thank you Patrick for your diligence each and everyday to end this horror for horses.

  3. VILE.
    My heart goes out to all racehorses who were maimed and/or died for this pathetic excuse for gambling.
    This business is a modern day Romanesque blood bath.
    For what?
    For stupid $2 bets – what a waste of money and a sentient being’s life.
    If you can’t see that then there is something seriously wrong with you.
