THE 2013 GRAND NATIONAL
Posted 6 April 2013
It was a calmer, less deeply distressing race to watch compared with last year. With the ground favouring horses staying on their feet, there were fewer fallers, and less evident exhaustion. However, out of 93 runners entered into the three races on the Grand National course this week, two horses died, several fell, and a large number pulled up – some possibly injured. The course, therefore, still presents a potentially lethal challenge to horses.
