Jumps racing is a cruel and dangerous ‘sport’ in which horses are forced to jump metre-high fences at high speed. It’s 10 – 20 times more dangerous to horses than flat racing, and many of the injuries sustained during jumps races can be horrific.

Jumps racing now only occurs in Victoria (after Racing SA scrapped the 2022 season) where horses continue to die on the tracks every year.

The Victorian Government and racing industry leaders deem it acceptable to have an ‘allowable death quota’ for horses (the ‘target’ fatality rate set by industry is about 15 times that of flat racing). So long as they permit jumps racing to continue, they share the responsibility for every horse dying on the track, and every punter maimed or injured.

Gambling money does not justify what jumps racing victims go through — nothing does.
