A PETA undercover investigation has exposed underground horse racing in America. PETA investigators' video of Rancho Centenario near Atlanta showed horses drugged before being placed in races that attendees then wager on as entertainment. The compelling PETA video was a part of a recent Washington Post report on ongoing races in Georgia, a state where there is no racing commission, and where any racing is unsanctioned. 

PETA Senior VP Kathy Guillermo oversees the Equine Matters Department and talks about how people can stop underground racing. She also provides updates on the department's work including the effort to stop tens of millions in taxpayer subsidies to horse racing in New York state.
