I think that happens in any sporting community. Look at the value of a champion gelding to that of a stallion and look at the instances where prize winning race gelded race horses go to slaughter while stallions go to retirement homes.
That priority is a fault in us and how we view living, breathing, animals as things with a "value" other than just the value of life.
