I listened to the Belmont on the radio today, and now the controversy over this race begins. On one hand, I do not like some of the things that go on in racing, years ago the area I live in had quite a few race related businesses, and when I would go to the auction I would see the cast off breeding mares. Disgusting and terribly sad. However, I realize that without a race and show horse industry, I would not be able to enjoy my backyard horse. There would be no feed stores or horse vets, I would probably not be able to live in a city with zoning for horses.
