In the just-concluded three-day Grand National meet in England, three horses were killed.

Grand National Meet

In the just-concluded three-day Grand National meet in England, three horses were killed: Forest Des Aigles and Crucial Role Friday, Up for Review in the main event yesterday.

Said a Jockey Club Racecourses director, “As a sport of animal lovers, we wanted every horse to come home – and sadly that’s not been the case…” (BBC).

“Animal lovers.” Contemptible.

Anyhow, I came across the following article written by a former bettor and Racing enthusiast. In it, he recounts his transformation from part of the problem to part of the solution. 'The day I realised everything about horse racing was wrong.' (The article was penned and published prior to the most recent deaths.)
