We are pleased to announce that Breeders’ Cup has partnered with our fellow leaders in Thoroughbred racing to form the industry-leading Thoroughbred Safety Coalition. Breeders’ Cup has always placed the safety of our athletes as priority No. 1, but we know more needs to be done. We owe it to our athletes – equine and human – and to all who have treasured our sport for decades.

So now, we are combining our resolve, expertise and resources to collectively implement enhanced safety measures within Thoroughbred racing. Together with Churchill Downs, Del Mar, Keeneland, NYRA and The Stronach Group, we represent more than 84% of the American Graded Stakes and are committed to bringing increased transparency and accountability to the sport. This begins with a comprehensive and centralized set of standards that include medical, operational and organizational reforms across our organizations.

Today’s announcement of the Thoroughbred Safety Coalition is just a start – but an important one. We are all committed to making our great sport safer – and we will.

Great article and I agree also. 

People need to think twice about what and how they post in response to racing articles, issues, etc.

And getting people to the track to experience it is something I try to do.  Example:  My husband's grand-niece went to Saratoga for a weekend with me when she was twelve.  She now is in college and is raising her own yearling (soon to be 2), has taken many lessons and has also herself trained both children and adults to ride.  And she is going to see some OTTB's with me on Tuesday that are up for adoption.

This is ridiculous Stronach Group isn’t consistent from state to state. Florida needs to wake up or there could be protesters at Gulfstream soon.

And this is the kind of stuff they really need to come down hard on.
