In what can only be described as a day of carnage for the Australasian racing industry, three horses lost their lives in two races on either side of the Tasman on Saturday.
The deaths have prompted horse welfare activists to renew their calls for an end to jump racing. There have been 10 deaths in Australia alone in the past four months, and the fatality rate from falls has more than doubled this year.
