Horse Racing is not cool

Tomorrow is Melbourne Cup day, a public holiday for horse racing.

Everyone has gone crazy in Melbourne with the spring racing carnival which appears to be an excuse to dress up and get drunk.

Its important to not lose sight though about what the day and the rest of the carnival is centered around: cruel horse racing.

I'm not much of a fan of gambling all together but forcing an animal to run as fast as it can by whipping it continually is really NOT cool.
