Ben Myers on horse racing
There's an article at ABC Religion & Ethics by Ben Myers (Faith and Theology) on the treatment of race horses .... The Melbourne Cup: Godless race that tramples creation. It's worth a read. I've been interested in horse racing since I was a little kid and read The Black Stallion, but though I'm interested because it has to do with horses, I think it's in many ways a very cruel industry, as can be seen sometimes in the book Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand.
