Horse Racing: March Summary

Horse racing

The racing industry is responsible for unnecessary cruelty to animals. Horses are forced to race and are pushed beyond their natural limits.

The following is a summary of all NSW racehorses who have acted in a way that is indicative of not wanting to race and the injuries horses have sustained.

Horses “protesting” their involvement

In March, 245 horses protested their involvement through various behaviours. From bucking and dislodge their riders, to not want to enter the barrier or being fractious in the barrier, missing the start, running slow, being unresponsive, and uncompetitive. These are all signs indicating their reluctance to race. Despite this, they are ignored, whipped and repeatedly entered into the race. Five horses were retired because of their behaviours and three will be leaving the stables.

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

In March, 168 horses suffered from injuries during the races. These range from abnormal respiratory noises and cardiac arrythmia to bleeding, lameness, lacerations, and being slow to recover. Six horses were retired because of their injuries.

These numbers do not include horses who suffer from bruising as a result of the whip.

Two horses were killed as a result of their injuries.

The stewards were also notified of the death of Vibes, who collapsed and died after competing at Grafton on 27 Jan 2020. They suffered from an internal haemorrhage caused by a ruptured artery.

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

Other Issues

In addition to these injuries, 21 horses heavily collided with either another horse, the barrier gates, or the rail. Collisions show how unsafe the tracks and races are. Horses who collide with another horse are at risk of falling and injuring themselves.

What you can do

No horses deserve to suffer in the name of entertainment. The only way to end the cruelty is to end the “sport”. You can help make this happen, by making the decision to never attend or bet on a horses life again.

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