Death and Disarray at America’s Racetracks – 3/26/12

the-new-york-times1 The New York Times has started what-is-apparently-going-to-be a series looking at America’s horse racing industry.  The article pulls no punches, and, hopefully, will help spur serious discussion as to how these beautiful horses are managed.  It’s been a long time coming.

CLICK HERE to read the article in the New York Times, March 24, 2012 edition.

DR. RAMEY NOTES:  The article is horrifying.  It is also reflects the worst-case scenario.  I personally think that there’s a lot that should be done to make things better for racing horses, but the problem is not limited to these horses, either.  See my article, “In the Name of Performance.”
