Toe Grabs = Catastrophic Breakdowns. Multi-Million Dollar Track Surfaces Won't Help. HELLLOOOOOOO.....

Yes, I agree that the horseracing industry does everything wrong, including racing babies, inbreeding, and other questionable breeding practices. But for a long time now, I've squawked about toe grabs, race shoeing practices, and the hoof pathologies created by gallop training. David M. Nunamaker, VMD, DACVS, apparently concurs:

This is particularly disturbing in light of the reversal of the toe grab rule. WTF is wrong with these people????
