Herd Around the Barn

This Saturday marks the 154th running of the Belmont Stakes - the third and final leg of the Triple Crown races. To honor the horses who suffer needlessly for gambling and entertainment, we are re-releasing Kathy's conversation with longtime animal-rights activists Nicole Arciello and Patrick Battuello, founders of Horseracing Wrongs,

In this episode, they discuss:

  • Kathy’s childhood on a thoroughbred farm, and how it informed her attitude toward horseracing
  • the lives of racehorses from training to racing, to what happens when their racing careers are over
  • why Patrick and Nicole believe that “reforming” the industry fails to address the worst of the abuses
  • why they believe that horseracing is a dying industry, and how you can help bring about its end
