52. I stopped watching horse racing 20 years ago
Precisely because I got sick of seeing them go down on the track during races and have to be put down. And even when medicine advanced, I didn't want to see it. The short thrill of watching them run so their billionaire owners could make even more money wasn't worth the chance they could fall and have to be killed.

I'll never watch greyhound racing for the way they treat their dogs when they're through with them.
