Cup favorite Admire Rakti dropped dead in his stall shortly after today’s Melbourne Cup.
This cruel industry must END. The vast majority of horses bred for racing become ‘waste products’. A bullet to the head and a trip to the dog food factory is the fate for thousands of horses who never see a race, or who don’t earn enough money for their ‘owners’, or whose bodies can no longer cope with the physical demands of this shameful practice.
You can help to end this, simply by choosing not to support this cruel industry:
NEVER BET ON HORSE RACING
REFUSE TO ATTEND HORSE RACES
