    Another horse - the 4th this jumps-season, has died today. Hopefully we don't see another season of this in Australia. For me, it's a sport for too-fat jockeys and too-slow racehorses, but hey, the public can still place a bet. Well, you can bet on a snail race too :mad:

    RIP pony.

    I'm not positive on this, but have heard from the horseracingkills group with Vic and SA combined they've had 7 horses in 7 weeks die/euthanized. 1 is 1 too many really.

    It's just so sad, and the people with the power to stop it won't, simply because they are "fans" of the "sport". When every poll that has been done by state newspapers, 7pm project etc show 70% of people want it stopped.
