Horse races are known for their pageantry, and this weekend’s Belmont Stakes will be no different. Over-the-top hats, high-stakes gambling and graceful thoroughbreds come together to create a spectacle that will be broadcast on televisions across the country. There’s a dark side to the sport, though, that happens off screen, hidden beneath the fanfare. Kojo explores the use of performance-enhancing and pain-masking drugs in horse racing and its effect on the industry, fans, jockeys and horses themselves.
