Is horse racing bad?

Horse racing itself is not bad, but some of the practices are. The main breed used for racing are Thoroughbreds, they are tall, elegant, early maturing horses, but many are trained and raced by the age of 2 years which is still too young and causes severe problems later on. Horses are also allowed to be put on certain drugs to enhance their performance, while numbing pain that they may feel. Horse Racing needs to eliminate certain drug uses and not allow racing until the horses are at least 3 or 4 years old to stop the breakdowns and injuries. But on the positive side many Thoroughbreds get the best care money can buy and are probably the most useful breed of horse around. Thoroughbred racing groups tend to also donate large sums of money to charities as well.
