European trotting sport has in several occasions been represented at the International Trotting championships at Yonkers racetrack. So also this year with horses and drivers from Norway, Denmark, France, Sweden and Italy. A Norwegian bred horse, Cokstile, trained by an Italian trainer and driven by an Italian driver won the race. The behaviour of the driver of Cokstile, Vincenzo Piscuoglio Dell'Annunziata, was unfortunately totally unacceptable with severely abusing the horse by using the whip hardly several times.
This kind of driving is of course forbidden in the UET-countries and if such a behaviour would occur it would render to a hard punishment. UET strongly disassociates this kind of handling of trotting horses in a race and actively works for the general welfare of horses on all levels.
