Nathan Nguyen started this petition to RSPCA

Today (November 6th) was the Melbourne Cup, and during the race a horse was sadly put down on the race track immediately due to a broken shoulder. if we didn't have horse races that could of been avoided. as long as other incidences. an example is that two horses collapsed after the race in 2014 and sadly passed away, for the Red Cadeaux 2015 a horse broke it's leg and sadly passed away as well. statistics have shown that nearly all horses in the races have experienced bleeding in the lungs, while 50% of horses will experience bleeding in the windpipe, about 89% of racehorses will have stomach ulcers. all will be thrashed by a whip. during training these horses spend 22 hours in a bedroom sized stall which results with digestive and abnormal behavior. the horses are drugged so they aren't showing that they are in fact in a large amount of pain from being overworked. they are also fed food with unnaturally high energy content. the average career for a race horse is usually 3 years, after that they are "discarded". any "discarded" horses that "didn't make the cut" (which is around 10000-25000) are slaughtered for dog food. Today it was raining quite heavily, but instead of postponing the event to a later date or later in the day, they continue on with the races, which comes to my theory that they don't care about the horses' health or the people riding them, they want all of the money made from the people who are willing to bet money on these horrid races. please share this petition around so we can get enough signatures to ban this disgusting event.
