People look at an unidentified horse at the ring parade before the start of race at the San Siro horserace center in Milan May 23, 2009. Italy's once high-flying horseracing industry is flagging, with bets shrinking and prime horseflesh leaving, and the sector has turned to the government for a rescue plan. Once a prestige sport bankrolled by industrialists and status seekers, horserace bets were off 16 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier, bucking an overall upturn in the nearly 50 billion euro Italian betting market.
