    When you are talking about thoroughbreds you see at the reputable tracks then we should all live so well. Nothing about their lives are difficult or abusive.

    The lower end is a mill. Especially Harness Racing (Standardbreds). Some of the tracks have to pay entrants just to fill the race cards. Races are often fixed for low end races just to keep them going.
