Re: [RC] Congress to Examine Horse Racing - Trailrite

I feel the life of these horses is VERY important.  After all, we're not the only living thing on this plaint that is important.  They want quality of life just like humans.  They just can't speak out like us.

  I realize that there is a lot of bad stuff going on in the horse racing industry these days.  But I would much rather see Congress work on the important stuff like the cost of gasoline/diesel, health care, food shortages and so forth.  After all, I didn't send my senators and congressmen to DC to investigate steroid use in sports, or horse racing.  JMHO
