Update 3865: It is nice to see not all farming interests are pro-horse slaughter, as some would try to portray: Farming leader makes stand against horse slaughter, excerpt:
"When learning about the issue, people advocating horse slaughter kept saying horse slaughter is an important industry to farmers and horse owners. I had to take a stand and tell Congress this was just not true," Dr Boyd said.
"The industry exists out of greed and those advocating horse slaughter could care less about horse welfare."
Found on Paulick Report.
Update 3864: Today, the discussion board is two years old. Here is the second post posted on August 8, 2006: Welcome to Tim Woolley Racing.
Thank you Prospero for all your support.
Update 3863: A busier morning this morning at Woodbine with eight sets. Five before the break and three after the break. It was a very damp morning, with plenty of rain and thankfully no humidity. All the horses I rode went nicely. Two went to the gate for a little schooling. On my way out I stopped by the track kitchen for a decent breakfast. I ate and chatted with Laura, who is originally from Lithuania, and is a freelance exercise rider here. Fun actually sitting down and chatting with someone you see every morning and simply exchange hellos.
Update 3862: It is Arlington Park's big weekend this weekend. Aside from the Arlington Million, they have the Secretariat Stakes and the Beverly D, both also Grade 1 events. The Jackson's are represented: Trio of prominent turf runners to meet in Beverly D.
Please keep calling and writing both DC and your local offices.
