  1. I hope and encourage people to not only read these lists, which show the brutality of horse racing, but also look up these horses records,read some of the charts, and relise just exactly what is happening to them. I follow pa racing and since the corruption runs so deep there, i dont have the time for much else, so take for example meadow storm 4 posted works, 2 from the gate (racing rule) 1st race vanned off after not even mentioned in the charts only displayed in the footnotes, why well because it was after the finish and penn tries to hide it. Next scottsgold 3 yr old, 4 races, works 3 furlongs the day before the race, makes it a little over a quarter mile into the race and is pulled up vanned off. Pulled up vanned off nothing, what other “sport” goes about things this way?. Im on to your bullshit horse racing, and its only a matter of time before the generalized public is also, wonder why your game is in shambles heres the answer, because it takes little time to realize theres nothing for the horse built into this buissness. Ed Rendell did you ever consider the horses when you passed the breed devopment program or was it just the money, because now guess what that moneys untouchable has written articles to protect it, thats why these people dont give a shit because no matter what they do they are secure

  2. This is another “Shindler’s List” because the only difference is the victim.
    Please people STOP buying Jackson wines.
    The owner, Barbara Banke, is heavily into horse racing and as a Board of Directors on Keeneland is a determined, participating supporter of this blood bath that is probably financed by her wine company in California.
    By buying this wine you are contributing, in some form, to the massive suffering of racehorses which she has plenty of.
    She breeds, buys, and sells racehorses as if they are non-sentient commodities like her wine bottles.
    Disgusting person.
