Kentucky Derby Predictions & Analysis

The other horse who is favored to win the Kentucky Derby is Bob Baffert’s horse, Roadster. Roadster won the Santa Ana Derby and has three wins in four races. He is ridden by Florent Geroux. The race is less than ten days away from the derby and the excitement is building up.

The analysis and predictions of this race are interesting for sure. Some predict this year’s race is going to be mind-blowing.  We have some early picks to share for the race. Maximum Security has been said to be a favorite, fresh off a win in Florida, but he will tire quickly is what the predictions tell us. The top horses in the world will be racing May 4th, and he cannot hang with them for too long.

A long shot favorite is Haikal. He has 50-1 odds against him, but several predictors are choosing him to win. He has won three races of five. Omaha Beach is favored to win the derby and has 7-2 odds. Followed by Roadster at 7-2 odds, Improbable 5-1, Maximum security at 6-1 odds, Game Winner who has 7-1 odds, and Tacitus at 14-1 odds. There are twenty horses who can take the garland of roses, but which one will be the champ? It could be a long shot and we could see Haikal or Country House, who has 100-1 odds, take the win. We won’t know until the race ends. What we do know is that this Kentucky Derby should be one for the history books and one everyone will be talking about for quite some time to come.

Guidelines for Ethics of animal experimentation

During the Grand National season, many different thoughts might pop up. When you watch the Grand National race live, you may think about the ethics of animal experimentation. Many people may bring up this thought. We have some information for you all in case you are on the fence about the horse racing itself.

guidelines for Ethics

There are ethics put into place for just about anything. Human ethics and animal ethics both exist. There are lists of ethics for the animal, especially equine welfare. The first ethic of animal experimentation is that all animals have essential value and it has to be appreciated.  Animals are sensitive and feeling creatures that feel pain, and the interests of the animals have to be considered when you are using them for sport or other experimentation. People may acquire, care for, use, and dispose of the animals in compliance with the current state, federal, and local laws. Also, they must also consider the regulation and professional standards. Each of the animals must be cared for and there must be a reasonable effort made to make sure that the animals are comfortable, have no infections, illnesses, and they are not in pain.

If the animals are in pain, there is a procedure that needs to be followed to ease their pain.  If surgery has to be done to the animals, they must be under the correct anesthesia and techniques must be followed to avoid any infection and minimize pain after the surgery. If the animal has to lose their life, then it should be done rapidly and with effort to make sure their pain is minimal. The main idea when it comes to treating animals well with any type of experimentation is that these animals need to be cared for in the best way possible.
