I am re-posting this from last May.
The Horse Racing industry is not a glamours place for a horse to be.
I will not be supporting the derby this weekend.
At the time of publishing this blog post, this girl stands in the #10 feedlot at the Camelot Auction in New Jersey praying someone saves her from slaughter and gives her a good home. She is the great granddaughter of Secretariat and grand daughter of Thunder Gulch -- she raced 7 times and won -- but none of that matters now. Now she is facing slaughter....unless an angel steps up to give her a wonderful forever home.
Seriously. DO NOT SUPPORT HORSE RACING. Trust me when I tell you, behind the scenes is not Juleps and Pretty Hats for the horses.
