There is only 2 DAYS LEFT UNTILL THE MELBOURNE CUP!!! i know that many people on this forum may not be against horseracing but i really want to change some peoples minds in the short amount of time we have left untill the race. I put together this short video about the melbourne cup with footage that i got from the horse sales where many racehorses are dumped and go for both pet meat and human consumption. PLEASE if you can share this video, SO many people dont know that there is a dark side to the racing industry, and if this video can change at least one persons mind then it is well worth while. ecstatic
p.s sorry for the dodgy quality of the video, i was in a bit of a rush xx

Good video. Great message. I'll be posting on fb.

I'd love to meet some Melbourne Cup activists. How gutsy they must be. It's such an ingrained part of Australian culture, it seems so daunting to challenge it.

I think I can confidently say that the majority of people on this forum are very much against horse racing. I'm getting so angry I can hardly contain myself. I'll probably have to be sedated on Tuesday! 40,000 horses dead in one single year, I can hardly believe it.

I think you did a wonderful job with your video, it was heart breaking. However, I noticed on the right hand side of the page, a lot of 'pro' Melbourne Cup videos came up. You should post your video as a video response to them.

Keep up the good work!

i know! and its awesome but i posted something about horse racing a while ago and a couple of people were offended and there was a big argument, so i just though i should put that in happy i am so angry too maggie!! i HATE it so much!! and everytime i hear an add on the radio, or see one on TV i can hardly contain myself. I just cant cope with the fact that everyone see's it as a celebration, when its really horrific behind the scenes...people just dont want to hear it when you tell them!! i wish i could be in Melbourne on the day and stand outside the races with a HUGGEEE poster and a microphone showing what really happens to the horses after the race, but i would most likely be arrested or something ridiculous because everyone is so proud of the disgusting race sad  and awesome idea!! ill do that!! happy

Great video Rhi happy I find it hard to contain my emotions when I see or hear advertisements for the Melbourne Cup - even worse my mum is going out with friends to watch and bet on the race, even though she is well aware of what happens to the horses but she won't change her mind. If I ever say anything about racing she just shuts me out, it's really frustrating. I dread Melbourne cup ever year.
