Protest horse racing at Saratoga this Saturday, July 23rd

A group of New York area racehorse advocates are planning a protest against horse racing cruelties and deaths this Saturday, July 23rd, at Saratoga racecourse. And you are being called to the post!

The event’s Facebook page invites everyone who can to please turn out.

Caslon Quote Left BlackLet’s make this a HUGE protest! We need to get as many people as we can to stand up to the thousands going into the track this day. Please INVITE Friends!

Horse Racing Wrongs estimates that 2,000 horses die on American tracks each year! Thousands more die at the slaughterhouse bound for a dinner plate in Europe.

Please come out and help us educate about the cruelty and death that is horse racing.


Time: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Place: Corner of Union Ave and East Ave (across from the main entrance)

Signs and leaflets will be provided. Homemade signs make a big impact as well.

This is the day after opening day.
Short Black Line

  1. I so wish I could have been there but, unfortunately, I’m in Ohio. Peaceful protesting is something that I strongly support and I have protested in front of Petland here in central Ohio since they obtain the puppies they sell from puppy mills. I wish we could organize a protest at every single racetrack in this country!


      1. So glad to hear this. The protests have been very successful where I am. Raising public awareness of the plight of these innocent noble horses is hard work but people need to be informed of the ugly side of racing. Selfless dedicated people representing the horses who’ve suffered inexcusably for far too many decades.
