Melbourne Cup: Horse Racing Industry Rejects Cruelty Claims

Following the recent death of two horses at the Melbourne Cup, the horse racing industry is rejecting claims of cruelty.

Jamie Lovett, co-owner of Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist told the press that those who talk about animal cruelty at the races do not know about how the horses are really treated.

“I wish these guys would go to the track at five o’clock in the morning and see how these people care for their horses. There would be no argument if you could see.” he said to the press.

Last Tuesday, the race’s favorite Admire Rakti h became distressed and died of heart failure in its stall shorty after the race. Another horse, Araldo broke a rear leg on a fence and had to be put down by vets.

Spokesperson for The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, Ward Young wants a ban on the use of whips in racing as well as a ban on racing of two-year-old horses. He said: “We believe that pushing horses beyond their physical limits through use of the whip, and racing horses while underdeveloped at two years of age are significant factors as to why horses break down on the racetrack.” .
