I get your logic, that’s what happened when they banned bear baiting...There would be a lot more deaths if they stopped racing as they would have no need for the horses anymore
Also the sport would go “underground” and then you would see real cruelty.
Micky I mentioned Aintree because that’s what gets all the press being the most famous race in the country and it always comes up.
Not sure there are many other sports that kill in such numbers. Apart from shooting which a lot of people find bizarre.
