Just heard on the TV that one horse died and another horse was recieiving oxygen

This happens year after year and it makes me sick. Its a cruel cruel race.

Which horse was this?

EDIT: just heard its Hear The Echo.

Awful news that. I was so gutted the other day when the awesome horse of Exotic Dancer had a heart attack. Tragic :-(

how do the horses die?
thats a shame

Probably at the thought of ]who claimed they had backed it. For once I wished it wasn't all lies!!!

Exactly why I never bet on horse racing, but particularly The National.

Lets make horses jump over impossibly high fences purely for our gambling pleasure...

aww it is a cruel race...when a horse breaks its legs it's rendered useless so they have to shoot it

I agree, then people would realise how bad it is

Its amazing that the number is so low tbh, the amount of horses that finished & survived this year is far higher than the last 10 years

I agree, every year i see it, i see at least 20 horses land neck first on the ground, so its obviously cruel, even if they don't die, they still feel pain from doing it. maybe the lazy irishmen should use their own legs

Horse racing is barbaric,what right do we have to climb on an animals back and race it
