Letter to the Editor on "foal crop"

To the Editor:

The article on the Fasig -Tipton Sale spoke volumes about the racing industry in two words- “foal crop” .

“Foal Crop” is not how we refer to living sentient beings.

It is how we refer to a crop grown for consumption.

In two words the absolute truth about racing is revealed.

Please publish my comment.

Thank you,
Lisa Goodale Brinton



Foal crop is the term that has always been used to denote the number of foals born each year, and it has nothing to do with a crop grown for consumption.

Foals are obviously not born or raised for consumption as horses are not eaten in this country.

Plus, in this country, it is against the law to slaughter horses or to eat them.
