This is good news. I wish more tracks would do this.

Horse track takes lead with no-slaughter policy
'Humane thing to do is to euthanize them if you have to,' trainer Zito says
   
BOSTON - When Suffolk Downs decided to ban from its backstretch those who sell their horses for slaughter, the goal was to save a few animals or a few dozen that might otherwise wind up as food.

Horse track takes lead with no-slaughter policy

Ooo, thank you for that.  I haven't been on Pedigree Query for a week or so; I'm sure the discussion is several pages long by now.

But I'm so glad someone took the first step.  There is no "correct" answer to the problem.  One of the issues is humane transportation.  The people who ship horses to slaughter might be very nice people, but economically they are bottom-feeders so shipping them as cheaply as possible means deplorable conditions.

I think that's been a problem from the very beginning. Sad
