It can take even the fittest of horses many weeks to recover from the exertions of a race, yet Beyondtemptation, an 11 year-old pregnant mare, died last month after being forced to race THREE TIMES IN JUST 17 DAYS. Her unborn foal also died.

The British Horseracing Authority (supposedly responsible for horses' welfare) allows owners to force a mare to keep racing UP TO FOUR MONTHS into her gestation period.
