My personal good deeds have no connection to horse racing. You guys don't know me so don't question my intentions as a person. You guys have yet to attack my argument and have only attacked my person.

Well, I would bet that if you came in to this thread and put forth an eloquent argument rather than a rant that included "Fuck eight bell(e)s and barbaro" and "fucking race horses" - people would not question your intentions and attack you.

Pretty classless! You deserve the backlash!

I hate horse racing, always have. If people want to participate in sport and force themselves beyond the limit of human endurance, then fair play to them. I don't see the point of using animals which don't have a choice in the matter (I also include greyhound racing, horse jumping, dolphins in seaworlds, ferret racing and anything else you'd like to mention). And I REALLY hate betting on horse races.

What backlash? Did you even read what I said other than the "fucks". Your discounted what I've said other than that.

THESE HORSES WOULD NOT DIE IF THEY WERE NOT FORCED TO RACE FOR RICH PEOPLE TO MAKE EVEN MORE MONEY.

I would find it tragic for a horse to die in the wild by being shot by a hunter. I hope you people can make the distinction.

So because this was a racing horse, you can't have any empathy, but you could for a wild horse? What makes a wild horses death more tragic than a thoroughbreds death during a race? It's not like the horse has an active role in the decision making process about racing.

Not true!!!

To race in the Derby, the horse has to be 3 years old.

This was a very nice, sensitive thread, and I don't think it's very appropriate for you to come here and be so callous. I suggest you either show a little decency and respect towards the feelings of others or else choose to not participate in this thread. If you want to debate the views on racing horses, I think a different thread elsewhere...perhaps in Free Your Mind...would be more proper.

Indra, I 100% understand where you are coming from, however we still can't talk to other members like that.

ok, I have created a thread in FYM so you can continue this debate there. I don't think this thread was meant to be for that at all. Go ahead and take the arguments there.

Titans, I would love for you to explain what you mean in your post about the difference between wild horses and racing horses. To be honest, I don't understand what you mean at all. Clarification in FYM??

Thanks,
Philk
