174: Horses are not Machines!
With Del Mar Racing Season in full swing, Ellen Ericksen is back to talk about the horses! According to www.HorseRacingWrongs.com, as of July 2019, the beginning of the season for California, 63 horses have already been reported as dead as a result of this cruel industry, people call a "sport". Unfortunately, the reported deaths are often modest compared to the actual deaths due to under-reporting and other deceitful conduct, in order to keep numbers low, and ticket sales high.
Current stats (CA only), as of 7/24/2019:
Del Mar: 2 dead
Golden Gate Fields: 13 dead
Los Alamitos Race Course: 10 dead
Santa Anita Park: 35 dead
Alameda County Fair, Pleasanton: 3 dead
Protests every Saturday at 11:30am at Del Mar until September 3rd, 2019
