How Can I Help?

  • Don't bet on animals' lives! Betting income and racecourse attendance fees keep the racing industry in business.
  • Make a donation to Animal Aid so that we can continue holding the racing industry to account.

The image the racing industry promotes is that of a harmless sport in which its prize asset - the Thoroughbred race horse - is cosseted and treated like a king.

In reality, no other sport comes close to matching racing's attrition rate. If it did, a ban would quickly be imposed. Approximately one in every 42 horses who starts a season's racing will have perished by the end of it. They will have died as a result of a racecourse or training injury, or they will be killed after being judged to be no longer financially viable.
