Thoroughbred breeding - time to change?

Read this article and see what you think.
I particularly agree with comment no. 8 at the end of the article regarding the breeding from unsound horses in the States because they can race there on medication.
We all know the problems you can get with these 'designer -horse racing- machines' but if they can't fulfil the job they were bred for without breaking their legs then surely something is very wrong with the breeding system.
