Horse racing is such a dangerous sport as today’s Grand National proved.
Only 15 out of 40 horses finished the race, 22 horses came out unharmed while 2 were put down and the other received treatment from a vet.
‘Synchronise’ the favourite to win the race was one of the horses that had got put down and the other horse was ‘according to Pete’.
According to many sources this was one of the most dramatic races in the history of racing.
Putting the sad news aside, well done to Neptune Collonges and jockey Daryl Jacob for winning the 2012 Grand National.
The Highlight of the Horse Racing calendar is Finally here! Last year Ballabriggs won the famous national race and some betting outlets have tipped him to win again this year.
Here are my picks for the 2012 Grand National:
On His Own (14-1)
West End Rocker (14-1)
Good luck to everyone taking part in the national both on and off of the race course!
