Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Sally Eckhoff: Thoroughbreds die at the track, and it goes without saying that they all die young: 37 horses have perished at the Santa Anita racetrack in California since the end of last year. ... Win or lose, every horse needs a future. I doubt anyone looks at a stream of shiny Thoroughbreds on their way to the post and imagines any of them even at 18 -- the change of expression on an aging face, the sagging back, the chancy vision. I've ridden Thoroughbreds out fox hunting who've been around so long their lip tattoos are too blurry to read. But when horses are put to the most rigorous athletic tests of their lives at 2 and 3, most won't make it that far.

What do you think M4A means?

I fail to see the connection between M4A and extra glue and gummies for non-vegans.

Horses are people too.

Don't buy a Thoroughbred unless you are an accomplished rider. High strung, tall and fast, they are not mounts for a novice. They are not very gentle. They are not cooperative. Get a paint horse instead. Thoroughbreds are bred for one purpose, to run.

The steaks are also very tough.

Need not go to waste: HORSE MEAT YOU'LL WANT TO EAT? 12 DISHES AROUND THE WORLD www.hostelbookers.com

Decades ago in Europe I tried something very much like this one:

Steak tartare is a meat dish made from raw ground (minced) beef or horsemeat. It is usually served with onions, capers, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, often presented to the diner separately, to be added for taste. It is often served on rye bread with a raw egg yolk.
