There's just something WRONG about how they train these horses so hard and then run them so dangerously. All for greedy addicts to bet on. Maybe when they put down a horse, the trainer and/or rider should automatically go down, too. Is this any less sick than dog fights?

Contrary to many peoples beliefs these horses are well taken care of. Not all owners and trainers and jockeys are idiots just out to make some money. Some truely care about their horses and do what they can to protect them. Accidents happen. Should we stop nascar just because something happend to a vehicle as they drove at high speeds around a track and injured another driver. No. So why should we get on the backs of racehorse trainers accusing them of things that they may not have been able to prevent. i know several trainers, owners and jockeys at the track and i garuntee you they do what they can to protect their horses life even after their race career is over.

A machine is not a life, a horse is and they do not have a choice.
