Upset at Grand National as only two horses die

Race for survival

The annual horse murdering festivities at Aintree have resulted in a shock for the bookies as only two horses died.

Hyped up all week as the most gruelling and exciting steeplechase in the world, people gamble millions and then pray that the horses they put money on don’t fall and get put down.

Punter Derek fumed, “My flutter fell at the second so I lost my tenner.

“I’ve heard he’s died though so that makes me feel a bit better as he got what he deserved for wasting my money.”

Silly hat wearer Annette enthusiastically said, “It’s like ‘The Hunger Games’. Except it’s for horses. And it’s real.

“If it was a football match, it would work out as one player dying per game. You could earn money from it too.

“Wouldn’t that be exciting!”

    Ah, God bless ‘dem horses.

    The Pete one that got shot; it was the one I had in the office sweepstake!

    My Twitter feed is full of ladies saying how upset they are about the horse deaths.

      Hi Michael hope you’re well. Synchronised was the other fatality, who was one of the favourites. To be fair much of the talk before and after the race has been about the danger to the horses. Pretty horrific.

    I earned £300 when Synchronised won the Gold Cup – crying shame

      Yep shows that all of them are at great risk. Thanks as always for reading.
