(from HBO release)
The slaughter of Thoroughbred horses for profit will be examined by HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel in a one-hour show that debuts on May 12 beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Correspondent Bernard Goldberg, who recently won the 2008 Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Journalism for his 2007 Real Sports story on the NFL concussion crisis, reports. He traces the disturbing journey many of these young and healthy horses take from the track, to auctions, to slaughterhouses, and finally to the plates of European and Japanese diners who pay top dollar for the delicacy.
Joe Perskie is the program's producer.
