Derby Day

No billboard in Louisville was willing to host this PETA ad, so the organization took the message mobile outside Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day.  They could've sensationalized the truth more dramatically with the picture online of a horse dumped next to a toilet in a junkyard down the road from Riudoso Downs after it had died on the track a day or two prior.  There are plenty of articles online that graphically describe the horror of racing, fatality statistics, the cruelty of the sport.  No need for me to elaborate, but thought it worth mentioning on Derby Day weekend.
