Hate horse racing. I worked breeding thoroughbreds in MA for about a year after college. Every broodmare had something wrong with her from racing. Owners visited infrequently and couldn't even put a halter on. Mares were usually drugged so they'd accept a mount. The colts and fillies are raced way too young, at too fast a pace, on improper surfaces...well, enough about that....but you're right, tim, PETA is having a fit, and for good reason.
