    I don't plan on watching it. I think horse racing is cruel. The animals are way too young to be pushed like they are. The whole Barbaro thing is proof of that. I think its awful.

    Here's a link to more info and a sneak peek:

    Jockeys : Animal Planet

    I watched the sneak peek and all I can say is hmmmmm.....It's a little different than I was expecting, but I will still watch the premiere.

    Barbaro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Eight Belles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The first one is about Barbaro. And the other is Eight Belles. Similar story. They are race horses who were injured during racing.

    That's horrible. So young too...on second thought I don't think I'll watch.

    It's really horrible what happened to them. My horse is an ex-racehorse and he has so many scars on his legs that I couldn't even begin to count them. Some have been there for over 10 years, so they must have been bad enough to prevent hair from ever growing back in spots. :(
