Horses Were Abused for TV Show

As published in the NY Daily News
January 8, 2013

Trainer for the HBO series “Luck” Matthew Chew states the animals “weren’t abused” (“Horses abused on ’Luck,’ ” Jan. 3). Well, four horses died during the making of this series, which is unacceptable. Chew further states, “only anti-inflammatory drugs were given for the comfort and protection of the horses.” But the horses wouldn’t need any drugs if they weren’t forced to race.
