Fight Night died at the end of the last race Thursday.  

"We are out to end horse racing in the United States" said Patrick Battuello, the founder and president of the Horse Racing Wrongs founded in 2013. "This is not a sport like it's been sold for 150 years, it's simple animal exploitation, animal cruelty, and animal killing."
