    I fell out of love with NH a number of years ago and haven't watched the National for a few years, but was somewhere this afternoon that had it on. What happened at the first fence was horrible. The issue for me has always been the size of the field on good ground and the cavalry charge at the start.

    Yeah that wasn't nice to watch at the first fence with the horse flapping away on the ground.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Awful viewing. Poor sod. Graham Wylie has been so unfortunate with his horses.

    Suffered a broken neck apparently, or so I've just read.

    At a price, I like Blue Flight in the Scottish National tomorrow and I'd be disappointed if Ibis du Rheu doesn't have 10lb in hand on his mark in the 1.55.

    Seems like Ruby may be retiring.

    I can only assume the decision was spot on then.

    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    Wicklow Brave put down yesterday after a bad fall which fractured a shoulder in the US Grand National.

    I thought they could fix shoulder fractures nowadays? At least to the point of the horse having a reasonable life even if it couldn't race again.

    This makes my piss boil. The headline on the BBC website was that the horse had died following a fall. It died because it was killed, and it was killed because it's no longer of any use to them because it can't make them any money. Fucking disgrace.

    Well it depends how bad the fracture was really. If they can't stand up on it then that is dangerous for the horse. They need to be able to stand for their bloodflow.

    The report that I read said that they killed it in the stables area so that suggests it got their on it's own or they have done it on the track.

    Gold Cup favourite, amongst others, banned from racing due to incredibly dodgy syndicate practices. Top work.
