PETA is pissed :

Horse named Congrats Gal died following race at Pimlico
MAY 18, 2019 / 12:50 PM / CBS NEWS

Baltimore — A horse named Congrats Gal died Friday following a race on Black-Eyed Susan Day. The horse collapsed after an eight-horse race at Pimlico Race Course, which is hosting the Preakness Stakes Saturday, CBS Baltimore reported. Jockey Trevor McCarthy looked on as officials tended to the horse, who collapsed after the race had concluded.


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals senior vice president Kathy Guillermo called the death "sickening."


"The sickening collapse and sudden death of Congrats Gal at Pimlico today are proof that the Maryland racing industry has not done enough to protect horses," she said. "PETA will be calling for a formal investigation, including a necropsy and blood toxicology panel, and for the release of all medication and veterinary records. We will be contacting the district attorney's office, as we did in California, where the D.A. has appointed a task force to investigate training and veterinary practices."

They can “call for a formal investigation” all day.

The horse is private property. It’s up to its owner to have any post-mortem examinations completed to determine the cause of death. I’m curious to know the legal standing for an outside party to compel such an investigation.

It's a good thing the Derby didn't go as disasterously as it could have -- there would be calls for a lot more restrictions on racing -- and they may be right

We used to have a local track that had a really horrible record when it came to how the horses were treated -- thankfully it shut down long ago


horse racing will never go away completely though ... too much $$$ involved

There will be a complete necroscopy on the horse but it was almost certainly a heart attack.

PETA stole and killed a pet dog, owner says

AN animal rights group has allegedly snatched a pet dog and killed it — and the owners are worried there is nothing they can do about it.

Wilbur Cerate said the family pet, named Maya, went missing from their home in Virginia one Saturday in October.

“[My daughter] didn’t want to go to school, she didn’t want to do jobs, she’s crying,” Mr Cerate told WAVY.

Security footage showed a van labelled “PETA” (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) pull into his driveway, the news site reports. Two women got out, snatched Maya from the porch, and put her into the back of the vehicle.

A friend said PETA had been authorised to pick up stray dogs at the trailer park where the Cerates live. But Mr Cerate said the dog was on his property and well cared for.

Peta workers 'dumped 80 dead animals in skip'

For 27 years, it has sought to highlight alleged animal rights abuses through often shocking campaigns.

But People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), the controversial animal "rights" charity, is now horrifying people for an entirely different reason as two of its own workers face accusations of secretly killing dogs and cats.

In a case that has dismayed the organisation's followers and delighted its critics, Adria Hinkle and Andrew Cook are accused of collecting animals from rescue shelters on the pretext of finding them homes, then giving them lethal injections and dumping their bodies in a supermarket rubbish skip.

Time to shut down horse racing. Most the horses in the Kentucky derby who didn't place have been sold for slaughter. Nice people they breed mares only to take the new borns foals sell them to slaughter .

All those high and mighty rich people are fake when it comes to caring about their horses. It's a sport with no concern about the athletes unless they win. if the don't.. they are gone.

I've done a lot of animals rights and rescue work and I hate PETA. That said, I agree that horse racing is immoral.
In his poem Human Pride, Marx admits that his aim is not to improve the world, reform or revolutionize it, but simply to ruin it and enjoy it being ruined:

With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.”

– Nasseim Haramein, Director of Research for the Resonance Project


Normalize every aberrant behavior, bring common all deviancy and let fly the reins of morality and reason, then welcome in that utopia that liberals embrace called communism, that which most Americans with but a shard of ethic would immediately recognize as evil.

For the people claiming horse racing is cruel, that they don't like to run...

BULLSHIT.
I have owned many horses.
Some where laid back,
Some where straight out slackers...

And then there was Lil.

Lil was a QH from the Go man Go bloodline and you didn't have to even ask her to go.
She was warp speed Mr. Sulu ALL OF THE TIME. If she ran, she had to be in front.
If she trotted, she could keep up with the other horse galloping.
If I MADE her walk (which she HATED) she would walk as fast as she could get away with.
Little brat she was. I adored her spirit.

I never laid a set of spurs on her, and I never used a crop.
I didn't have to.
She was obediant and competitive as hell. No other horse could beat her flat out. If I let a horse in front of her she would fling her head and be that way until the ride was over. (Even when I gave her all I slack I could, she let me know how PISSED she was. Flinging her head up and down in fustration.

When I rode her, it was like flying.
You can't MAKE a horse run flat out. They might run, but it's not in their heart, you will know it.

So.... they pay thousands in stud fees (sometimes tens or hundreds of thousands) just so they can take the foal and sell it for a few hundred to a slaughterhouse.

Re: Racing Horse "Congrats Gal" Drops Dead After Preakness Stakes Friday Race


Majority of the first 23 were almost surely due to the heavy rains earlier in the year in SoCal. It was tragic, but some of the best track maintenance people in the industry couldn't ever identify anything wrong with the track. Other things were looked at as well (drugs, whips, etc.).

The fact it was restricted to Santa Anita and they had crazy amounts of rain pretty much assures the weather was the culprit.

This latest incident seems pretty unrelated, but it is always a tragedy when a horse goes down. They are very fragile animals. They are big and strong, but their legs are fragile and if they break their leg it can be difficult to impossible for the animal to survive. Something called 'Laminitis' sets in even if they try to fix a broken leg. It is more humane to just put them down. That is true on the track or running around on a farm.

The likely unsafe track issues are probably behind them. That doesn't mean no horse will ever again break down and be euthanized. Nobody feels worse about it than the people who own and work with the horses. Not even PETA feels worse, regardless of their unhinged hysterics.

As of last Friday, 6,635 horses had worked out on the main and training tracks, receiving official times, with no fatalities. The tally grew with another 142 on Saturday, 196 on Sunday and so on to open the new week.
