Australian Racing Board declares retirement of racehorses a priority

Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses

Dec 4, 2012 — Just last week, the Australian Racing Board issued a media release, addressing issues within the racing industry. One of the topics was “retraining and retirement of racehorses” which the board acknowledged is a “vitally important area of horse welfare” and that they would invest “heavily.”

Now that the racing industry has acknowledged this is a problem, they cannot possibly turn their backs on the thousands of racehorses killed at knackeries and abattoirs every year.

Our job is to make sure that a solution is implemented, and not simply an announcement. Let's keep up the pressure! Visit http://www.horseracingkills.com to keep up to date on the campaign to end wastage.

I'm glad to announce that the 2012 jumps racing season has finally wound up with the running of the last race in Victoria at Coleraine on Sunday. Unfortunately, as we have seen in years gone by, there were casualties, and while this cruel sport continues, there will be more.
