I thought I'd better watch the Grand National before I said any more about it, so I just have seen a replay of it, and it is sad that 2 of the horses lost their lives. Now I'd just like to say.... 1. I'd like to say that the winning horse was , not badly whipped by it's Jockey he was hitting the padded No. part of his saddle. 2. I think the winning Jockey had a wonderful race and should be proud of himself and his horse, who was no more out of breath than we would have been running for a bus. 3. These horses are breed to race it's the only reason they are here. 4. Horses get killed in all types of racing not just the GN. 5. If we banned horse racing what do you think would happen to all the horses, should they open up a new dog food company called "The Grand National" pets food company. Sorry if this offends some of you, but that the way of the world, nothing is prefect is it, and someone is always going to get upset.
