OPINION: Ban the whips!

DEAR News Of The Area,

I bet you will all be delighted in the news about Victoria Racing planning to ban whips during December!

Isn’t that great?

I am disgusted to read Gai Waterhouse’s objection to Victoria Racing’s decision to ban whips down there in December.

That’s a wonderful decision from VR and yes – research has found horses DO feel pain and whipping them does NOT make them go any faster.

For all the trainers and jockeys involved with racing their focus is only about money – greed.

If a horse isn’t fast enough it mostly ends up at the slaughterhouse.


It’s such a dirty game.

Salamander Bay.
