Horse Racing: June Summary

Every month, Animal Liberation reviews the horse racing stewards reports to record how many horses display signs of an unwillingness to race, all injuries, and how often collisions happen.

We regularly hear that horses love to race when in reality, they just have the ability to run fast. Non-human animals are known to compete for resources, not so much status. Unless their life depends on it, they would not push themselves to a dangerous limit. The horses entered in racing competitions are beaten into compulsion with the use of the whip. Other trainers use illegal methods, such as electric jiggers, to train the horses to comply.

Horse racing places stress on their bodies

Horses labelled as difficult

In June, 298 horses could be seen as protesting their involvement. From bucking and escaping handlers to refusing to enter into the barrier, being “difficult” to ride or unresponsive to the rider, or “uncompetitive” or performing “poorly”. Some horses have been “retired” or “transferred” from their stable due to their actions, others will be forced to compete in future races.

In addition to these behaviours, 477 were noted as “slow to begin”. This means that the horse was slow to leave the gates.

Please note, that there is some overlap between horses who are exhibiting poor behaviours or are “slow” and those with injuries.

The following table lists the horses and their behaviour, along with the date and racetrack. All information was taken from the NSW Stewards Reports.

Poor pre-race behaviours

Before entering their races, the following horses were described as having poor pre-racing manners. Fractious means irritable, unruly, and difficult to control.

The following table lists the horses and their behaviour, along with the date and racetrack. All information was taken from the NSW Stewards Reports.

11 JuneGraftonI’m JackoPre-race: dislodged jockey
6 JuneTamworthZoulingPre-race: dislodged jockey, galloped

175 horses suffered from injuries whilst racing on NSW tracks in June. Injuries range from minor, such as abrasions and overwhipping*, to major, such as severe bleeding attacks, lameness, and cardiac arrhythmia.

We would like to note that not all injuries are life-threatening, however, many can be indicative of a more serious health issue.

Bryon Roy and Bart died as a result of their injuries. My Nordic Hero was also killed after suffering from an injury in May.

*Not all horses who were over-whipped were listed due to a lack of information in the stewards’ reports.

What you can do

The racing industry does not have the horses wellbeing at heart. If a person truly loved their horse, they would not risk their life for money. Far too many horses are suffering in the name of entertainment. The only way to end the cruelty is to end the “sport”. You can help make this happen, by choosing to not support the industry.

You can also help by sharing this information with your friends and family.
