If you had any sense of Horse Racing beyond yesterday’s results and tomorrow’s entries, you would realize PETA, no matter what you think of them (I don’t pay much attention to them at all, as the hunk of London broil marinating in the kitchen would tell you), have done more to bring about change in Racing in the last 6 months than Farish, Phipps, Janney, JB and the Jockey Club have done in decades. Timmy and Belinda would never have gone on their crusade unless there were 30 fatalities, and the pressure they faced,PARTIALLY due to PETA and that group’s ability to manipulate social and mainstream media.
Cruelty to animals will be scrutinized closely, and if Racing’s foes are able to convince the mainstream that Horse Racing is cruel, game over, grab the golf clubs, take up bocce, or bet the races in a country where the sport/business has been managed better than here.
