Last year, the deaths of two horses in the Grand National caused a public outcry. Two days earlier, at the same Aintree meeting, another horse was killed.
Since 2000, 38 horses have been killed at the three-day Aintree meeting, with 22 of them dying on the Grand National course itself.
Animal Aid is asking Belfast Telegraph readers to support our Sanctuary Not Cruelty initiative. We are asking people to help two sanctuaries that rescue horses.
