Los Angeles – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo relating to a California decide’s order to disqualify Justify from his win within the 2018 Santa Anita Derby:

Justice was gradual, however the courtroom has finally come down on the facet of the horses’ and ordered Justify’s win within the 2018 Santa Anita Derby to be put aside. It may’t finish right here. Justify examined constructive for a banned substance and should be stripped of his Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown titles. He wouldn’t have certified for the Derby had California officers acted correctly and thus would by no means have gained the Triple Crown. Bob Baffert should not sweep doping underneath the rug with flimsy excuses, and the business should take duty for safeguarding all Thoroughbreds always.

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals are usually not ours to make use of for leisure or abuse in every other method”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
