  • It is a really sad industry.
    Theyre very often drugged and abused. They tend to be put down once their career is done unless they're really sucessful... or are lucky enough to be adopted.

    Plus, racing at 2 years old isn't safe as they dont have a mature skeleton..

    Its a lot of sad.

    I've gotten the pleaure of working with a few though, young ones off the track, and theyre really wonderful, smart horses.
    I love my thoroughbreds.
    Just wish the industry wasn't how it is:/

  • Because it is one. The fact that you don't like it, the fact that the problems you have with it may even be legitimate, does not make it suddenly not a sport.

    • exactly the kind of well thought out, intellectual response I expect from an idiot child of the "my feelings matter more than reality" generation.

Have an opinion?
