Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey says her officer will not file charges over recent horse racing deaths. Patrick Battuello from the group Horse Racing Wrongs believes the law tolerates practices like jockeys whipping horses.

”You know, if you saw someone whipping their dog, you know through a park, you would call the police and that person would be arrested for animal cruelty.”

He wants horse racing to be banned the same way dog racing is now outlawed in most states. Horse racing companies insist they’ve improved their practices. Dozens of horses have died at Santa Anita Park over the past year. Other tracks around the nation have similar statistics.
