Cruel horse racing was the undoing of Canadian Winner, the unfortunate horse who collapsed during the last race at Churchill Downs on the day of the Kentucky Derby earlier this month. Another horse then tripped over the fallen thoroughbred and had to be transported off the track. The fate of that horse, Appealing Alex, is unknown at this time.
Did you realize that an average of 24 thoroughbred horses at tracks around the country sustain a catastrophic career- and life-ending injuries every single week as a result of cruel horse racing? Watch this behind-the-scenes 60-second video and discover a culture of drugs, deception, and death.

What You Can Do to Help End Cruel Horse Racing Now
The drugging of horses for races is killing them. Please contact your U.S. representative and senators and ask them to support the Horse-racing Integrity and Safety Act of 2013, Senate Bill 973 and House Bill 2012, which would increase oversight and penalties for overusing drugs in horse racing.
