This year, while those in the U.S. who are involved with horse racing are drooling over the possibility of a Triple Crown winner, those who detest this cruel and deadly business think only of its victims — the racehorses.
Here is a video which does a good job of exposing much of what goes on.
You can hear what it sounds like when a 2-year old filly fractures her canon bone while galloping during training at 3:50.
We also have Glenn Thompson’s most recent video interview on our website’s multi-media page.
Glenn is the Thoroughbred racehorse trainer who wrote the book The Tradition of Cheating at the Sport of Kings.
