SYDNEY Wholesale Adidas Prophere Trainers White , Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- A small but determined group of activists launched a protest in Sydney's Martin Place Tuesday, to highlight the cruel treatment of many horses in the thoroughbred racing industry, on the most important date in Australia's busy racing calendar.

Melbourne Cup Day is Australia's best-known horse-racing event and is held on the first Tuesday of November every year.

The massive national event is popularly dubbed as "the race that stops a nation." It is an annual public holiday in the state of Victoria and sees millions gamble on the winner and join workmates and friends at the boisterous pubs that broadcast the race.

However, Sydney office workers were given a small taste of the dark side of Australia's multi-billion dollar racing industry Clearance Adidas Prophere Running Grey Red , when Greens NSW MP John Kaye led demonstrators in a concerted push to highlight the treatment of animals in the racing industry.

Dr Kaye told Xinhua that the industry was couched in 'grim' statistics.

"People should enjoy the Melbourne Cup but we encourage them to spare a thought for the thousands of thoroughbred racehorses that are discarded and sent to the knackery each year."

"Many participants in Melbourne Cup celebrations today are blissfully unaware of the grim fate facing thousands of injured and failed racehorses." He added.

Its little surprise given the power of the local industry and the lazer-like focus the Melbourne Cup draws, both domestically and internationally.

The main racing event takes place at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria.

More than 100,000 punters attend the day-long event with local races held throughout the country.

When the main race of the day occurs at the Flemington Racecourse it is televised on screens at race-tracks across the country and to a global audience of about 650 million people.

Even those Australians with little or no interest in racing or gambling usually stop whatever they're doing just before 3pm on Melbourne Cup Day to watch or listen to the main race either via television Shop Adidas Swift Run Multicolor Men's Purple Black , Internet or the radio.

At the races, people dress up -- many women wear their best or most colorful hats and dresses, with some participating in fashion parades on the field. Marquees are set up for VIP guests, including local Buy NEIGHBORHOOD x Adidas Iniki Runner Boost Men's Black , national and international celebrities who attend this festive event.

Champagne, wine and gourmet finger foods are usually served on this day.

While offices grind to a halt nationwide, there are still some Australians, such as the Greens MP Pharrell x Adidas NMD Hu Trail Men's Casual White Sale , who deem horse racing as a cruel sport and have been vocal in their protests over the years.

According to the Australian Greens, of the 18,000 foals that are born in Australia each year, 70 per cent will never make it on to a racetrack.

Dr Kaye said that while some owners look after their horses after their racing careers Wings + horns x Adidas NMD R2 Primeknit Black Men's Clearance , thousands of thoroughbreds deemed to be 'too slow' or economically unviable are either abandoned or sent to the knackery.

"Of those horses that survive to have a racing career, many suffer injury, illness and deprivation." He said.

"Industry practices result in 89 percent of horses suffering from stomach ulcers from high-concentrate diet and lack of access to grazing.

"More than 75 percent of thoroughbred racing horses are driven so hard that their lungs and windpipes bleed."

A study of racehorses at Randwick (NSW) found that 89 per cent had stomach ulcers, and many of the horses had deep Adidas Tubular Viral Jogging Triple Black Cheap , bleeding ulcers within 8 weeks of the commencement of their training.

"Turning a blind eye to animal suffering in the horse racing industry will only ensure that these exploitative practices continue," He added.

The Australian industry turns over 1 billion Australian dollars in annual wagering sales in the state of NSW alone. The four days of racing over the Melbourne Cup carnival this week are set to generate a record 600 million Australian dollars in gambling turnover across the country.

The Australian horse racing industry is worth over 8 billion Australian dollars annually and employs over 240,000 people.

According to Animals Australia, the scale of the industry is huge - around 15 Adidas Tubular Defiant White Women's Online ,000 thoroughbred foals are bred each year in Australia, and a similar number of standard bred foals are born nationally.

Racing at this young age puts the horse at particular risk of injury because at this age the skeletal system of these animals is still immature and unprepared for the physical stress of the racing world.

Regardless, the lure of the very high stakes for the two-year- old races mean many owners push trainers to have their expensive animals compete.

The Greens are calling for NSW Gaming and Racing Industry Minister George Souris to conduct an urgent review into the regulation of the thoroughbred racing industry.

"It's time to separate promotion from regulation and remove the conflicts of interest that are maintaining unacceptable animal welfare outcomes," Dr Kaye said.

The race is on to find a compromise that is worth betting on.
