  1. Look at the force this jockey is putting into striking this horse with his tool of the trade, the WHIP!
    Such intensity in this act of violence against this racehorse almost has him out of the saddle – speaks volumes.
    Horse who is doing his best is being punished – totally confusing for this intelligent sensitive animal.
    Horse knows that no matter how hard he tries, the whipping will continue.
    Jockey’s sole focus is inflicting pain on this innocent animal who may well be racing with –
    a pre-existing injury
    muscle soreness
    respiratory problems
    healing wounds on his body
    and a raft of other health issues including his mental state

    There’s a huge amount of research out there on a horse’s state of mind e.g. happiness, behaviour, etc.

    Does this horse in the pic above appear to be happy?

    This is horseracing.

  2. Horse racing is a modern day slavery ring complete with whips and human domination.
    This is yet another Death List that speaks volumes about this vile industry.
    The PP’s on these racehorses reveal suffering, but the SECRET medical records mask the truth.
    Take for example CASCADE ROCK (CR)- out of a “top” trainers barn Neil D. Drysdale (ND)
    It’s important to note that “top” trainer is the industries interpretation of a trainer who has no problem inflicting daily abuse, cruelty, doping, dumping, and/or dying to fill the wagering coffers.
    Neil, in his illustrious “career” has filled all of these definitions in any other setting, but not in horse racing.
    In fact, these types of trainers are inducted into the Racing Hall of (SH)ame – 2000.
    It’s important to note that, upon review of ND’s 8,097 starts, most of his racehorses come from all over the world (mostly GB) and many have dropped dead while racing or training in California.
    CR fits this pattern.
    Incidentally, CR DNF’d his very first start and this racehorse abuser continued pounding on him.
    FOREST CHATTER – owned by the infamous Pam and Martin Wygod ran on 4/2/2017 finishing 2nd last by lengths, struggling to get through the race.
    After 1 year of being off the track (indicating serious issues) these heartless bastards had no problem throwing him into the cruelty ring after he made $269,890!
    Not one of the “good folks” of horse racing did anything to protect this horse from dying – nothing – not one.
    This is horse racing and the ugly truth behind it.

  3. Correction: racehorses being “vanned-off” have not been confirmed dead as of this post.
    However, the industry does a good job of masking things from not disclosing names to not disclosing what happens in the stable area away from public view.
    Also, their secret medical records is an additional part of the masking process.
    This is all deliberate and works in tandem with hiding the truth from the wagering public.
    Nevertheless I would like to thank Patrick for his tireless work on exposing this information because, otherwise, this industry would be getting away with murder.
    They do anyways because their investigations usually lead to nothing and little to nothing is done to deter/prevent racehorses from dying.
    Patrick, I believe that some may show up on your Death List when confirmed?
    Nevertheless, the dying does continue as seen on other posts.

  4. Just want to draw attention to an editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer calling the 2.4 billion PA racing has received from casinos since 2006, staggering corporate welfare !

    ( I was alerted to it on The Paulick Report)
