Animal activists have called on Taylor Swift to reverse her decision to perform at the Melbourne Cup after it was announced she would sing two tracks from her album Lover in the mounting yard on 5 November.

“I can’t wait to come to Melbourne, and I can’t wait to come to the Melbourne Cup,” Swift told the Herald Sun.

But the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses has been quick off the mark with a campaign to ask Swift to say #NupToTheCup on social media.

If Taylor Swift cares at all about other animals the way she appears to care about cats, she will cancel her show

“Horses are being killed for gambling profits and entertainment. If Taylor Swift cares at all about other animals the way she appears to care about cats, she will cancel her show and make a strong statement that animal abuse is unacceptable.”

The chief executive of the Victoria Racing Club, Neil Wilson, said the club was thrilled to have Swift at Flemington for the $8m race.

“To think you can come to Flemington and watch not only the race that stops a nation but see one of the world’s biggest – if not the biggest – entertainer perform for the cost of a general admission ticket is phenomenal,” Wilson said.


The animal activists have a very valid point:

Verema- 2013
Admire Rakti- 2014
Araldo- 2014
Red Cadeaux- 2015
Regal Monarch- 2017
Cliffs of Moher- 2018

Have all died in the race since 2013. That is shocking to hear from a race which is 2 miles on the flat.

As a horse racing fan myself as you know, that does not make for good reading at all, I always dread this race when it happens on the first Tuesday of November.

What do you think, should Taylor perform at the Melbourne Cup or not?
