HISA, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority, finally began its investigation of the 12 horse deaths at Churchill Downs.  And it could lead to a shutdown of the race track while the findings are pending. 

HISA appears to be following all the recommendations made by PETA's Horse Racing Department that was sent to Churchill Downs at the beginning of May when the death toll was at two horses.

PETA's Kathy Guillermo, Sr. VP and head of PETA's horse racing division, discusses what's at stake, and what HISA could do if it's  serious about ending deaths in racing.
