They Kill Horses, Don’t They

In Sports on October 15, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

A horse has “died” during the Pardubice Steeplechase on Sunday. The event was even witnessed by HRH Princess Anne [apologies to my U.K. readers if the title is not totally accurate… but as a person who has interviewed about a dozen ambassadors, PM’s and other political figures I think it should be accurate…]

Isn’t it ironic? If a Formula 1 pilot dies in a race, there is a huge investigation. If there is a huge crash during a Formula 1 race the race is red-flagged and sometimes extreme conditions allow for a race to be cancelled altogether.

A horse dies a few minutes into a steeplechase and nothing happens.

Weird, odd, strange…
