The controversial signage decision has not been the only thing to attract animosity towards the race, with animal rights activists making their voices heard at a protest outside the raceground on Saturday

About 60 protesters from the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses could be seen holding placards outside the event, while making sure their voices were heard by the thousands of racegoers parking their cars nearby

Those protesting held up slogans ranging from calling for jockeys' use of whips to be banned to questioning whether the pomp and circumstance surrounding horse racing is really worth it

The coalition's activity, aside from protest, include undercover investigations, public awareness campaigns and political lobbying
