I was really hoping to avoid this tbh, its all over my facebook page and tbh I am not interested as it becomes an absolute warzone.
The horse world will always be split down the middle with this, always. I am neither for nor against racing however I don't ever believe it will be stopped due to the amount of money it brings in. ABC spews the most bias news reports ever to hit TV. Most of the horses in the videos are not racehorses straight from the track and most of them are brumbies.
Racing cannot regulate the abbatoirs and the abbatoirs that see fit to terrorize and abuse the poor animals going to their deaths need to be sacked and treated the way they treat those horses. Abbatoirs regardless of the breeding done by racing are a necessity it is what it is. However I believe their needs to be stricter regulations on breedings racehorses and harsher penalties on those that are backyard breeding. We need to focus our energy and time on improving the way things are done and managed.
