Animals Have a Right to Quality of Life Too! Relationship expert author Dr. Molly Barrow



Rags to Riches ran a great race at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. Because she is a filly and at a disadvantage in size and strength compared to a stallion, she ran an even greater race. Not since Tanya in 1905, has a filly won the final leg of the Belmont. In an exciting fight to the finish, she won by a nose beating Curlin, a champion in his own right. Rags to Riches did her grandfather, Seattle Slew, proud and "Team Female" all became winners, too.

But, does excitement need to be cruel? The beauty of the horse is more than enough reason to admire the species. Yet, for many centuries, men and women have demanded that the horse racing sport continues, even though breakneck speed often becomes a deadly sport to riders and animals. Just to have a few minutes of a rush, horse owners risk these exquisite animals, who receive a bullet to their head should they break their leg. Like the Romans at the Colliseum, people scream in excitement and pay money to watch the horses pushed to their extreme performance and riders topple to their death. Someday racing animals will be outlawed, just like cock and dog fighting.

If this is the "Year of the Filly" will women speak out against the use of animals to prove men's virility or to make a buck. What leader could change a multi-million dollar blood sport? If not a stallion, is there a filly brave enough to protect the country, help the poor and give back quality of life to defenseless animals.

By this time next year will presidential hopeful Senator Hillary Clinton show her strength and stamina in a race to the finish line with all male contenders? If I were President, I just might start with increasing the punishment for cruelty to people, animals and our Planet. The Colliseum and the concept of animal death for entertainment are Twenty-first Century ruins.
