Why Do Idiots Not Understand That Killing An Animal To Feed Your Family Is Different From Dog Fighting????????

Why do all these idiots in the news, I will refrain from pointing people out, think that there is no difference from killing and animal and feeding your family (hunting) and having two defenseless dogs fight till the death?????? Betting on dog fighting is not a sport and the $%^& that think it is are incompetent.

This Is For British/uk Punters Who Understand The Parimutuel Principles?

I am knowledgeable in North American racing but would like to learn more about the British punter’s choices when making wagers, such as „each way”, how many horses can Place depending on field size, getting bookmaker odds versus track odds, shopping for odds, whether the „laying” market is very liquid or can at times be problematic, whether as much detail is put upon track bias, length of race and jockey proficiency/record as in the States and Canada, as well as the possibility that a bet might return less than the wager and under what circumstances that might occur (I know about the minus pool „plunger” phenomenon); also any differences in the way that weight handicapping is assigned; whether there is a movement toward more women jockeys, as well as any other areas that you feel are worthy of discussion. Tall order, this!
Thank you in advance.
