Vile vegans and green gophers attempted to capitalise on the fate of an unfortunate horse by filming its collapse at Flemington after the running of the Melbourne Cup and distributing the footage to TV networks.

The magnificent Japanese horse, Admire Rakti, had been exhibiting a suspected congenital heart abnormality for years with mixed form. This grand horse, like many humans, died what it loved doing most.

Racehorses who don’t love racing never see a racetrack. Hurdlers who don’t love hurdling never see a hurdle. Horses, like people, will never excel at something they don’t love. But animal rightists never feel for people who die competing.

For thousands of years our horses have been a part of our agriculture, our wars and our competitions. Many, like their masters, have died in the process and for the vegetarian Left to go to the Melbourne Cup hoping to film misfortune is disgusting.

Anyone who doesn’t love to witness horses enjoying competing is subhuman and the complainants are invariably those who know the least about a horse.

The whip has always been an integral part of a horse’s performance. A horse is capable of feeling pain from only one area of its body at a time. When muscles ache through exertion, the whip redirects the area of concentration.

People feel enough pain when their horse is lost, without opportunistic idiots exacerbating the feeling of terrible loss.

The horse that suffered a broken pastern had nothing to do with racing and the only humane thing to do was to have it put down. No-one likes accidents.

The only people to take success from a Flemington tragedy yesterday were the animal rightists.

The Government should sack all Lefty-Green-Labor scum from the ABC immediately. They are all Demented, Sick, Vile, Lying Arseholes.

Aha. You are one of these people who want to change the laws to prevent people from enjoying a lawful pastime you don’t like? Is that correct? I agree there is not sport in shooting animals. I shoot animals to either eat, or cull when their numbers threaten their own environment or they are vermin.

I’m with you Rosa. I too don’t like being painted as being a loony leftie just because I’m a softie when it comes to animal welfare. Larry gets it spot on most of the time, but on bikies and this one, he’s got it wrong IMO.

LP . The looney left Greens never complain about some halal slaughter houses in Australia even who refuse to stun cattle prior to killing. Nor do they say anything about some of the horrific treatment of some of our live sheep on arrival in the Mid East. No veterinary surgeons on hand there to provide assistance. In fact do any of those Islamic countries even have such a thing as a Vet?

They would have been insured. to some owners the insurance is worth more to them than the animal. I don’t have horses but the game I was in it paid owners to get rid of an animal than save it.

I said it in another post Japanese do not like loosing face. I cried for the horse but to the owners the Insurance would have covered the loss. The horse may have run well at Caulfield fine but on the day (4th) it showed it was upset at the stalls. I have had an animal screened by the vet at it showed a whole in the heart (I know different sorry) its not hard and I chose to have it put down because I cared. The other horse that died on the day because of someone’s stupidity I hope they… Read more »

Warrick, do you rescue unwanted animals which are to be put down or do you adopt or arrange for adoption? Additionally the ‘whip’ as you call it is actually a crop and the Jockeys test it on themselves so they are certain it does not hurt the horse. It used to urge the horse not hurt or scare them.

ThePragmatist

ThePragmatist

The lunatics jumping up and down believing they have done the right thing. Meanwhile thousands of animals are put down each year because they are unwanted. If they truly cared for animals, they would adopt them and organize themselves so a system of adoption and humane caring is in place. Instead they get on social media, vent their spleen and wait for the next opportunity.

if a horse shows tendencies to be easily spooked, duty of care means that the animal should not be placed under such conditions, I would have thought.

they won’t because thats not what they are concerned with, its all about gaining control over the people, so banning horse racing is just a little piece of the strategy. Ban horse racing, what next, ban kids from riding at pony club?

Horses are edgy at the best of times , thoroughbreds are even more so,they will get spooked by the proverbial drop of a hat.A horse will get the spooks if it is quiet,if it is noisy,if the wind rustles the grass,you can never know,even a “bombproof” horse can suddenly shy at the slightest movement….Never bet on anything that has four legs or can talk!

yes it is sad to see the demise of these beautiful animals. But to ban racing? that is not the real issue, what it is just a prime opportunity for the socialist greenie, and all their associated idiots to try and gain control over people lives, even if it is just bit by bit. Ban horse racing what next? It is the socialist dream to have total control over the populous, Churchill, George Orwell, Reagan, Thatcher were all wake ups to them, I just hope we are too….

I am certainly not shedding a tear for EGW. I hope he rots in hell for the way he dismantled a well working society and way of life. Because of him we have ended up with young girls spewing out babies from different fathers and we the taxpayer are paying for them to do it. I won’t forgive how he wrecked Australia nor will I ever forget it.

Larry, re the whip; bullshit! I have been involved with horses all my life, from gallopers to draught horses, from foals to retiring them. The whip frightens them and causes pain. To state it is a “redirector of concentration” is just wrong and misleading to those of no horse experience. I also do not believe that people go to the races “hoping to film misfortune”. Come on man! The welcome to country, yeah that’s a crock of shit too.

Anyone that would cheer Gillard is dumb, fucked in the head, and morally bankrupt; which explains why they booed Abbott and Howard. It is plainly obvious that the brains of those of the Left have been incorrectly wired since birth – is there a case here for compulsive sterilization of all Leftists so as to kill off their defective genes?? Comment from the Left will be gratefully received. . .and quickly ignored.

Just another demonstration from grubs on the Left. In the last few years we have seen the dark side of Labor/Green/Union laid out in all its disgusting filth. Crooks, liars, opportunists, they’re all there. A lot of this is thanks to our Left-loving media and its disgusting lack of any manners or decorum. No wonder this country is mired in a stinking bog.

I first saw the film footage of the poor Horse collapsing in his stall on A.B.C. news I was horrified there was no reason for anyone to show this , The Program managers at A.B.C. should hang their heads in shame . Sympathies go to the people connected with these horses and the television networks should be apologizing for their inhumane actions.

What were these people doing there at the track? Like ambulance chasing lawyers, waiting eagerly for a tragedy to happen. Why don’t they hang out at gymkhanas oh, of course, that’s ok. Pricks. It was tragic, I will always remember Admire Rathki for his dominant win in the Caulfield Cup, and Araldo’s 5th placing. I saw Mike Moroney being briefly interviewed, after his horse’s accident. He looked like he was about to cry, poor fellow.
