Platinum Ticket’s Final Ride
Platinum Ticket, a successful grey Thoroughbred racehorse is discovered at the Knoxville Livestock Auction kill pen barely alive with a bullet in his head.
This documentary exposes the dirty secrets of the horse slaughter industry through the tragic story of Platinum Ticket. This successful grey Thoroughbred racehorse was discovered in a kill pen at the Knoxville Livestock Auction barely alive with a bullet in his head. The film tells the story of how he got there -- from winning purses at the racetrack to winning ribbons in the jumper show ring -- until his fortunes suddenly changed. Like tens of thousands of American horses each year, he became trapped in the horse slaughter pipeline – a long cruel road to a brutal death in the slaughterhouses of Mexico and Canada.
