Ban the Whipping of Race Horses

This petition had 18,336 supporters

Tuesday's Catalyst program on ABC has shown that the whipping of horses is a barbaric practice based on the erroneous assumption that 'whipping does not hurt'. If the whipping of an animal is cruelty off the race course why should it be allowed on the race course?  Let us show an enlightened attitude towards the treatment of all animals, including those that we bet on, greyhounds and horses. Perhaps we will have more animals like Black Caviar and we certainly will have a racing industry that we could trust and of which to be proud.
