In stark contrast, a horse stabled at the Bangalore Turf Club (BTC), they say, is taken care of by as many as six persons. There are a 1,000 of them at BTC. They are well fed and bred, and now, they have an NGO to speak for them - People for Animals (PFA). The NGO has filed a petition in the Karnataka High Court challenging a government decision to shift the Bangalore race course from its prime location to the suburbs at Chikkajala-Doddajala.
NGO’s case: There is no infrastructure for proper upkeep of horses at the proposed location. PFA, in its petition, says BTC has ‘ excellent’ facilities for taking care of horses.
