Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has named animal rights activist Bo Derek to the California Horse Racing Board. Bo is a long time horse lover who has been lobbying Congress for the last five years to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption!  Human consumption?! According to the Animal Welfare Institute, over 100,000 horses are killed each year and shipped to Europe and Japan to go on dinner plates!! It’s great to know such a strong vocal advocate for our equine friends will be watching over horse racing.
