Aintree response is inadequate
The response of the horseracing authorities to the deaths of horses at Aintree seems to be that they will have to take a long look at Saturday's events before any changes are made. The death of a proven champion belies the notion that controlling the quality of the entrants will have an effect.
There have now been four deaths (of horses) in two years. I guess we are waiting for the (unlikely) death of a jockey before any real action is taken.
The difference between a horse and a jockey is that the latter takes part voluntarily.
