Horse Racing: May Summary

race horses

Every month, Animal Liberation provides a summary of the NSW horse racing stewards reports. We provide a list of anti-racing behaviours exhibited by race horses, as well as their injuries and deaths.

The Australian racing industry claims that they are “committed to the welfare of the Australian racehorse”. If this were true, they would not be racing horses.

Welfare means providing and supporting “good fortune, health, happiness” and forcing an animal to race does not meet these requirements. Race horses are beaten with whips, have their tongues tied, are denied their natural behaviours, often forced to travel long distances, and undergo extreme training regimes. Ontop of this, injuries are common and can result in death.

In May alone, five horses died on NSW tracks, whilst another horse died during routine trackwork. In addition, 152 horses suffered from injures during the races.

With so many alternative entertainment options available, an industry founded on exploiting others should cease to exist.

Additional Deaths

The stewards reported two addition deaths from March, 2020.

23 MarchGlobetrotterKILLED – fractious, reared over partition, escaped, slipped over and suffered a soft tissue trauma and lameness
20 MarchWarwickVandusenDIED – Catastrophic breakdown with a sudden death

Horses not wanting to race

In May, 292 horses displayed behaviours that indicate an unwillingness to race. Many horses were labeled as having a “poor” performance, being “uncompetitive” or “unresponsive”, whilst others bucked in protest, were resistant to load into the barrier, were fractious in the barrier, or missed the start.

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.
