    How do you pick a winning horse, how do you choose between horses ?
    I think its very hard, especially if its an outsider.

    Do you consider horse racing a form of animal abuse? I am appalled to find out on the evening news that a race horse had to be put down because he broke an ankle during a race. A race horse that had broken an ankle was no longer good for racing anymore, so they put him down in order to save possibly thousands of dollars in vet bills. So much for the economics of horse racing. Just imagine doing this to a human being who had broken his ankle. Do you think a race horse who was injured in a race should be allowed to retire in peace and receive full pension and benefits?

    I dont knwo how things go on for horses after injury, all I know is that its barbaric to use animals for winning money, and risk their health. Thats what human are, they try to use everything and when its not longer of their use they throw it away...
