Flutter at the races backing animal cruelty

SOME of your readers may be thinking about having a flutter on the Cheltenham Festival, which starts tomorrow.

But beneath the hype more horses have been killed at Cheltenham racecourse than at any other course in the country.

By betting on and attending races, your readers are unwittingly financing an industry that every year sees large numbers of horses killed.

You can make a difference by withdrawing your support and by encouraging others to do the same.
