Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Starred, Ill
I had a feeling I should watch this year's Preakness. Now that I have, I wish I hadn't heeded it.

I'm not a horse racing fan myself - I dislike animal sports in general. Even though I know English-riding equestrian events are considered "more civilized" than others....and no matter how well the animals are taken care of, it just pains me to see when animals get hurt, especially because they're going head to head in competition. *sigh*

Yeah. I mean, the horses do like to run. But it would be a lot healthier for them to run on grass, as they do in Europe. The odds of this sort of injury happening on grass are way lower.

i didn't get to see it because i was at work (i didn't even know it was on), but my mom told me about it later, and, shit :( it sounded awful.

It was horrible to watch. I still remember the trauma of watching the match race between Foolish Pleasure and the filly Ruffian back in 1976. Ruffian had to be put down. It was extremely hard to witness.
