    Have to stop racing them when they are so young! Young brittle bones still developing and growth plates not yet closed, is it any wonder they are getting injured so badly all the time? It really is all about the money and greed isnt it? Owners and trainers just cant let them grow and develop before running them to death for the almighty buck! Shameful!

    In the 60's we had a thoroughbred named "Gypsy" who I was told had been injured at a California track (possibly Santa Anita) (the name is familiar). She broke a leg. They patched her up and her life migrated to here and there and to our family. She was beautiful. Through the years, sports, horse racing in the news would catch my attention. The 'industry' (and I HATE using that term for mankind's BEST friend) puts 'down' horses far TOO prematurely! Murder. They can be fixed. And they can retired to fire suppression so that strange people won't go around claiming that fire prevention can encompass 'controlled burns' . . . like the one at Los Alamos. But it's NOT about fire. Oh, no. It's about a friend (equine) who has been humans' friends for far longer than they're (equine) given credit for. Pigs should be disciplined. PERIOD.

    Unfortunately the trainers are solely responsible for the welfare of the horses 🐴 they train and THEY are the reason Racing is at the crossroads because training out of a bottle will only last so long and for some reason they’re happy putting the lives of all race and track riders at risk.If the industry is shut down they will have no reason to complain and unfortunately it’s the people doing the right things who’ll suffer the most!!!

      Only one authority in charge of English racing. No lasix used, strict use of all steroids in training and mostly turf tracks. Also the best English tracks are not are not dirt ovals. The Epsom Derby, the ultimate test of a thoroughbred is run over downland, we also have some of the fastest tracks ie Ascot and Goodwood.

    I think the owners/trainers start racing horses when they are too young and their bones and growth plates are not fully developed. Owner greed takes priority over horse health. Rules should be changed preventing racing until the horses re one or two years older. Better yet........outlaw horse racing entirely.

    • Nancy Mesek

      Exactly. Their bones and bodies aren’t mature enough to even be ridden at two, yet these young horses are being trained much earlier.

    Experts like Bob Baffert know some of the reasons as to why this year has been particularly bad, but of course he says nothing. One problem I've seen is that on Santa Anita's turf track, there's a small section where they run off the turf and onto dirt for about 10 or 15 yards. I had 2 horses in separate races fall just as they stepped off the turf and onto the dirt. Both looked like they might win until they went down. How many others went down on the dirt part of this turf track?

      @I'm Done You probably know more than me about Santa Anita so I'm wondering if you have any ideas why so many horses are dying this year at Santa Anita? If that was the turf course that had the 15 or 20 yards of dirt; I know I had 2 horses fall just as they begin running on the dirt and I thought one of them was only about a month ago. Maybe it was a few months ago, but I'm wondering if many of the horses who went down, were on that turf course?

    It's the hoof care...and they know it. Dr. Benson believes it is OK for horse to race using medications that prevent the Navicular horse from feeling pain. This creates a greater opportunity for injury. Sadly for the horse, navicular pain is reservable without medication...but the lameness industry, vets-pharmaceutical, like the status quo...big money. CNN probably will never investigate this because of profit concerns.

    A dying industry in need of euthanasia. Horse racing is inherently cruel, and often disastrous for the horses (and sometimes the jockies, too). Reportedly, some 2,000 horses annually die on American racetracks. When not on the track, these herd animals are kept stalled, in isolation, under great stress. The horses are often raced at too young an age, at too long a distance. Drug misuse is rampant. Remember Ferdinand, the 1986 Kentucky Derby winner? After earning millions for his owners, he ended his days in a Japanese slaughterhouse. Many of those responsible for this carnage belong in jail.

    Last year the State of Florida outlawed greyhound racing via a ballot initiative. It won by a 2:1 vote. All states should be considering something similar. There's no way that horse racing can be acceptably reformed. It needs to go.

      ericmills100 Ferdinand was owned by billionaire Nelson Bunker Hunt and trained by Charles Wittingham who also owned/trained Exceller who died in a Swedish slaughterhouse. Neither one could be bothered to use the horses' winnings to insure a secure retirement for them. One of the reforms must be a safety net for these horses after they leave the racetrack and also when their worth as breeding stock is exhausted.

    I am a competitive equestrian, and I will not support racing in any way. I have seen first-hand how these horses are abused, drugged and sent to slaughter. The crippling deaths that the public sees on the track aren't even scratching the surface of what goes on at the back end. The horses that race & survive, and then are either retired for breeding or become OTTBs in other sports are a tiny fraction of those bred, run and discarded. This is blatant , horrific animal abuse.

      Pamela Spatzler The worst barn I ever worked in was a show barn. The horses were dirty, overworked, barn sour, and underfed and most were owned by celebrities. The boarding/training fees amounted to $800 a month per horse and that was thirty years ago. The racetrack (namely Santa Anita) is not the problem.

    Send foxes and blood and grey hounds on to the track with the horses - if you are going to be heartless cunts show your colours - red.

    Riders, owners, trainers...they are all 1000% to blame. Stop the abuse now. Everyone is negligent.

    That why I would never support dog or horse racing industries. Too much abuses behind the door.

    Baffert is one to talk ... according to a vet, the necropsy of Ten Blessings showed a slab fracture in a limb other than the one that failed ....

      Baffert is not infallible nor do I trust his opinion. He has too much at stake.

      See my above post mentioning Baffert. He is a disgrace to racing but they think he is a god because he has won the Triple Crown (twice?).

      Oh yes they do! Have you ever seen "horse tripping," a standard event at the Mexican charreada, common throughout the American Southwest (and the national sport of Mexico)?

    This is a money game! I'm from Miami and it's easy to get a free thoroughbred from the track! Owners don't want to pay for injured horses! One owner I met was running his filly before she was a full 2 years old - she broke a bone in her spine during "hard" training! Killed her! I was given a thoroughbred mare! Trainer starved her and 10 other horses! Hard tracks break a horses leg! When they have an injured leg they do what is called pin firing on their legs that blocks pain but leaves them scared! Horse racing is a dirty business!!

      @Toni Touchberry It doesn't have to be as you describe. The things that are being taught at veterinarian schools are rooted in profit margins and therefore in one is teaching conditioning. An example is in your last statement. Starvation is not a root cause for poor hoof quality, in fact it's just the opposite. Neglect, lack of movement or back to back that's a different story. Toni, I am always looking for that right horse to fix...the one that makes the world stand-up and take notice. If you see one...keep me in mind...bruce

      @Smitten Kitten hi honey! Glad you woke up to that realization! You care about horses! I don't know if you are still interested in them but I'm sure, that there are plenty of magnificent thoroughbreds from the tract that need a good home! If you wish to take the time then please read my response to the other person who replied! Have a wonderful day babe and hug a horse for me!

      @bmc06239 hi honey! I think it's wonderful that you're doing good things for horses, but please don't be nieve! Even here in the mountains at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, I have seen things I didn't like! One horse had a knee (from an old injury) that was perminately the size of a soccer ball and he was used for "jumping"! A horse died from someone's stupidity during the world games! Everywhere horses are left in stalls for too long, the list goes on! I'd do anything in this world for the love of a horse! I just wish everybody else would too! When I got my mare I had to nurse her back to life! She was starved! Nothing but skin draped on bones! All the hair on her entire torso had fallen out along with her first layer of skin! I had to "debrief" her flesh everyday for months!! Breaks my heart just to think of it! She turned out to be wonderful but was constantly have foot problem (wish you were around then) but the farrier and the vet suggested that it was a result of the starvation! Please keep up the good work!
