In a typical week’s horse racing across Britain, numerous horses have suffered – some in the most horrific circumstances.
Animal Aid looked at racing during the period Sunday 15 October to Saturday 21 October 2017. This list details only information that has been published, and therefore there may be more injuries and fatalities of which we are not aware.
* Abused with the whip. This term denotes that the jockey hit the horse with the whip above the permitted level of 7 times in a flat race and 8 times in a jump race.
Says Animal Aid’s Horse Racing Consultant, Dene Stansall:
‘The week started with the very bonny gelding, Arthur’s Oak falling at a fence and breaking his neck at Chepstow Racecourse. A couple of days later, youngster Saradani Bay, who was only three years old, was destroyed at Newcastle Racecourse. Fakenham Racecourse saw Red House Hill’s life taken from him after pulling up injured in a hurdle race.
All of the above have their own stories. This is extremely disturbing and similar incidents happen every week. The British Horseracing Authority is responsible for horse wefare, yet horses continue to die and to be abused on a weekly basis. The BHA’s role in relation to animal welfare must be questioned.’
