Horse Racing

How many years has there been horse racing? In that many years
how many horses have had to to put down because of a freak accident like
breaking both front ankles? There have, I'm sure been horses that have
broken bones during a race or shortly there after.
I do not think the Jockey should be in trouble for this terrible accident.
In my opion if any one should be in trouble it would be the trainer, the
vet and the owner. I believe they have to be tested before a race and
examined to make sure everyone gets the same chance. Asking a Jockey to
not try to push their mounts to a win, is like asking all the owners not
to race their horses to win.
