<<Another victim of a so-called “sport" in which the horse is forced to take part against his will – according to Sonny Richichi, IHP President - and whose death is quickly dismissed as an unavoidable casualty. Our hope is that the public opinion will become fully aware of the reality of horse racing and will forcefully oppose it>>
