    I hope you punters had a great day out at the Melbourne club playing dress ups while these magnificent creatures Are getting kicked and whipped around the track as fast as their big hearts can handle.... I do hope this horse that was put down after fracturing it’s shoulder roams free on the plains in heaven, oh fuck! who am I kidding that part is just to make us feel better isn’t it? Animals should not be used as entertainment..... we don’t do the circus thing any more with animals so why is the circus still going on? money ....money..... money...... that’s why. rant over.

    If you're against racing then you could hardly sit down to a steak, and keeping a pet is right out and nothing pollinated by bees working for the man, there's worse shit going on than pampered horses running around.

    Expensive horses are put down by vets for insurance reasons. They use whats commonly called green dream this is a slow anesthetized death. this type of euthanasia makes the animal dangerous to use as pet food. A bullet is the only fast and humane way to put an animal down.
    So Chum prices should be steady.

    I know how it works had my dog put down using it, but I didnt chase him around the front yard till something broke....and I’m sure there is plenty of worse shit, when it’s shoved in my face on tv I’ll rave about that too. Btw my new dog hates chum, makes him fart.....might turn him vegan.

    I'm with you Scotty.

    Let's see how far you'd get climbing on another animal and whipping it's arse to make it run before the public condemning.
    Or even openly whipping an animal in public for that matter.

    I'm not saying it's OK and should be left.

    But I think there's many more important things that we should be getting up in arms about than horse racing. It's very low on my priority list.
    Lets think about things like:
    Our corrupt government
    Our children getting bullied, to the point that they take their own lives.
    Our service women and men being discarded after their service.
    Caring for our farmers, who are the backbone of this country.

    y'know, stuff like that.

    While I agree in principle, it's also a possibility someone once said something similar regarding the Tassie Tiger - "there's heaps of them, we got better things to worry about"

    Animals deserve the respect as much as any other living thing on this planet... Except for spiders - can kill those phukers all ya want...
