  1. Mairis so sorry for you.
    I cared, many of us cared, but those who were entrusted with your life sent you to your death – executioners.
    Immediately stop all funding to these hell holes that have no place in the 21st century.
    Pit bulls in the fighting ring have more legal protection than racehorses.
    Horse racing’s precipitous decline can’t come soon enough for these defenseless, voiceless victims.

  2. Horse racing is bad because of dead horses, permanently disabled jockeys and dead jockeys. This is a blood sport with no redeeming social value.
