    How can you possibly support a sport that features enslaved athletes who are bred to be structurally unsound? That’s sad, Joe. It really reflects poorly on you that you write about thoroughbred racing. It’s barbaric and cruel. You should be better than that.

    Please write about sports where the athletes choose to participate rather than being forced to.

    • Horses are bred and trained, not enslaved. People get enslaved, not animals. Perhaps, you mean abused. If so, you probably don’t know a single horse trainer. I’m not a big horse racing fan, but I don’t think you should come here and try to shame Joe for his “support”.

    • cass, are you a vegan? Do you have any pets?

    Sigh….Political Correctness is quite an amazing way to go about living, isn’t it?

      Don’t think it was a “political correctness” comment. Its a legit moral question. You can take one side or the other.

      For me horseracing just bores me to tears. I know some people love it but I don’t get it.

      Come to Saratoga in the month of August. This year we celebrate 150 years of Horse Racing, it is the most exciting 2 minutes in sports, the horses are majestic, the scenery breathtaking, it truly is the sport of Kings.
