A Great Day For Racing Even Though They Often Treat The Horses And Jockeys Quite Poorly

It was a great day for racing yesterday at Arlington International Race Course in suburban Chicago.

Here are some horses approaching the finish line and two photographers present to record the event.

The New York Times has recently written a series of articles detailing practices in horse racing industry-wide that endanger horses and jockeys.

And yet I went to the track anyway. I’ve been going to horse tracks for many years and in many states.

If you stayed away from everything that annoyed you, you’d never leave home.
