The Jockey Club Issues Statement Calling for ChangeBy Pharlap | 03-Apr-2019
Your views with respect to Indian racing standards
The string of deaths at Santa Anita isn’t the first spike in fatalities at a U.S. racetrack–these tragic events have happened before at other tracks and they will continue to occur without significant reform to the horse racing industry. The issue isn’t about a single track; horse fatalities are a nationwide problem that needs to be addressed on an industrywide basis.
There has been tremendous focus on the track surface, but the core of the problem lies in a " fundamentally flawed system!! " that falls far short of international horse racing standards–standards that better protect horses and result in far fewer injuries and deaths.
