Comment: "It was, and remains, the most heartbreaking thing I've seen'
No one can ever recover from seeing the like of this
"Last week we revealed how former trainer Kamil Mahdi, warned - off in September 2003 for ten years for cruelty to racehorses, had sounded out the BHA about re-entering the sport. Peter Scargill, says that must never be allowed to happen. "
J Margaret Clarke Turfcall Comment
How was Kamil Mahdi granted a licence by the British Horseracing Authority government in the first place? How many other British licensed trainers are there out there as cruel as this and getting away with horrors as these? How many other licensed trainers are there like Mahdi in India? Was Ice Age's trainer like this?
Mahdi should have been disqualified for the rest of his lifetime, and banned from keeping
any animals of any sort ever again. What is Mahdi background? Is cruelty on this scale what he has been bought up to accept? He clearly still has no idea what he has done wrong. As neither do the BHA who licensed him in the first place. Has Mahdi got any children? If so is this how he is treating them?
