Gulfstream Park for Thursday…however I would like to
discuss my comment on Race Day Las Vegas on Wednesday morning. I used the word “hate”, which might be a bit over the top, so I would like to modify that comment to say,” strongly disagree with them.” But I would also like to say, I do agree with proper “exceptional” treatment of race horses. Which for the most part, all race horses receive without anyone from the outside looking over our shoulders.
To my view and understanding, with more than 40 years of participating in horse racing from a fan to a professional, our race horses are fantastically well cared for. I agree it’s not perfect, but it’s exceptional in most cases – to my eye! Today, we have a perfect example, that people who cut the corners, usually get found out, in the end, everyone from the top of the industry down to you and me — want the horses to be cared for — just as they are — with exceptional care.
There are literally thousands and thousands of people, that have a personal relationship with each and every horse and many more that have relationships with many horses starting with grooms and moving up the ladder to Vets and Trainers… These horses are part of our society… and well cared for…
And I would add, it would be fine, if we did even more…but we can manage this from within…
