OTTBs: Victims of ignorance and prejudice

I have heard all the stories of doom and gloom and vicious destruction wreaked by OTTBs....

So I went out and bought one for my son. And in doing so was soon to find out if the stories and dire warnings I'd heard were true.

Was he a vicious monster?

Was he going to try to kill us?

Would we end up on animal Planet's "Fatal Attractions"?

Was he going to eat my grandson?

Here is a video I made that shows Beauseant, our 6 yr. Old OTTB wreaking havoc and trying to kill us....

It is a harrowing video, don't watch it if you don't like the sight of blood and destruction.

I should have titled this video:

I Am Scary Racehorse, And I Hate You!

See, all those horror stories are true. The OTTB reputation is deserved. They are evil and satanic.

umm...you all missed the point of the video. It was to show that all OTTBs are schizophrenic Satan worshippers!

(Seriously, thanks for your comments)

What a nice video. I remember you posting pics of him when hyou got him. He was a lot thinner , wasnt he? He is quite gorgeous and relationship with your son looks to be solid.

Tiny, yea he was emaciated when we got him. His body score was a middle 2. That's what happens to OTTBs when they don't win....they become discarded trash, not worth the cost of feeding them...


I feel so bad for this breed....either they win and spend their lives in the unnatural environment that is TB racing .....ending up unsound in body and unsound in mind.

OR they becomes the LOSERS of the racing world and end up as a can of dog food....


And what a shame that is because they are fantastic horses!

Joe, as an owner of an OTTB, do you ever just think "WHat the heck?!" when you hear some of the things people are saying about these horses in general? I mean, I am sure YOU have heard all the horror stories also....

And the funny part is, those who actually OWN OTTBs usually end up saying what fantastic horses they are!

The problem is getting anyone to WANT to own one after hearing how they are going to kill you and stomp on your remains.

SHEESH!
