GUEST,Patsy BS: The Grand National! (40) RE: BS: The Grand National! 16 Apr 12

The race has become just too big. Yet again previously healthy horses had to be destroyed and it seems to be accepted as a matter of fact. Just before the race began when the horses were being walked around it was chilling to think that some of them would be put out of their misery by that afternoon. Was it Synchronised that threw his rider and ran off, the animal should have been disallowed to run and the jockey's backside kicked for creating such a fuss for it to run.   Racehorses are beautiful to watch at full speed I agree but how many on average are destroyed in comparison to any of the other races? I can remember going back a while ago there was an expose about the Grand National and there was a call for the jumps to be modified then. It obviously didn't make any difference or there are still far too many horses being entered into the Grand National.
