Australian Horse Racing Industry Abuse Response
 By Winniefield Park   •   25th Jan 2020   •   511 views   •   0 comments

Jockeys, trainers, owners and others in the industry were shocked by the revelations of cruelty and the ultimate end of horses, some of which had been in their care. While those in executive and government positions seem unmoved, there is some effort by individuals to become more responsible for the horses that go through their hands.
