Wendy Needs to Wake Up!

Catherine WhiteContributor IMay 4, 2008

The horse in this photo is Legacy, or at least the "after track" picture of a horse that won $300,000 for its owner on the thoroughbred tracks in the US.

If I could upload the "before" pictures, you would not recognize this animal.

The death of Eight Belles deserves a lot of public scrutiny. Mares' bones do not stop growing until they are 5 years old.

These horses are pushed too young and too fast.

Wendy's blogs show she has no respect for the horse and its role in our civilization.

Horse racing has been a blood sport for a long, long time.
