PROTEST: Derby Day
Sat. 29 October 2016, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm AEDT
The sun is out and the birds are chirping, yes it’s that time of year again – Spring! As you step a little closer to the racetrack, you’ll hear the roar of the crowds, and if you’re close enough - the smack of the whip onto an exhausted thoroughbred.
As we have done in previous years, we will be targeting the Spring Racing Carnival to raise awareness about the various issues of horse racing such as two-year old racing, the whip, jumps racing and wastage.
This is the first of our Spring Carnival demonstrations - so let's make it big, and let the racing industry know it's time to start caring for their horses not just during, but before and after their racing lives.
Where: Flemington Racecourse - Epsom Road entrance
When: Saturday 29th October from 11.00 am until 12.30 pm
Why: To highlight the numerous welfare issues within the racing industry, and to encourage them to implement a retirement plan for racehorses
What to bring: Yourself, your friends and family. All banners/posters/signs will be provided
RSVP: Please RSVP on Facebook for banner catering purposes
