The horrors of the racing industry is not limited to the USA. While searching the internet for more dastardly crimes by horse trainers I found out that there is an uproar in Israel about expanding the horse racing industry. I also found some gruesome photos of horses being shot in a Hong Kong race track because they were too slow.
In Great Britain there is an organization that keeps daily track of how many race horses die either during the race or are put down shortly after because of an injury during the race. It is call Race Horse Death Watch.
All of these horrors could be easily avoided by horse trainers saying no to the horse owners when they want them to run. The horse trainer knows better or should about the condition of the horses they train. If more race horse trainers had ethics maybe the race horse industry would not be in the sorry state it is in.
