This article is a year old, but I think it is pretty good. Very well researched. I've been seeing advertisements all over the place for this horrid "sport", so I figured I'd share.

Ew. We have horse races where I live too. It's gruesome. I'll be there protesting this year.

Sounds like a horse was injured in the race this year. I watched the race on TV and they said that it wasn't fatal, but the horse would need surgery. I haven't seen any real news updates about it yet, though.
