Grand National Fences To Be Made Safer. [02:11]
Fences at this year's Grand National are being made safer in the biggest change in the history of the race. They are among a number of measures aimed at dealing with accusations of animal cruelty after eight horses died in the last decade. Last year the joint favourite and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised had to be put down after falling at fence six of the Grand National - the infamous Becher's Brook - and continuing riderless until suffering leg fractures. The death, along with that of outsider According to Pete, who was brought down at the same fence on the second circuit, led to calls from animal welfare groups for the Grand National to be banned. The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch". Aintree racecourse manager Andrew Tulloch described the birch as "horse friendly", telling Sky News "safety at Aintree is always our top priority for riders and horses and it's something we do not stand still on". He said the changes should make the Grand National safer but not any easier, insisting the fences will remain the same height. "The outward appearance of these fences will remain the same. "The big change here is that traditionally where they had a timber frame to them that timber frame has been replaced by a plastic, more forgiving, birch and on top of that birch there's a minimum of fourteen, maybe even sixteen inches of spruce and the spruce is what the horses can knock off," he ...

1987 Dwyer Stakes [03:07]
Gone West, who floundered while trying to provide Woody Stephens with his sixth straight Belmont Stakes winner last month, won back his national prominence yesterday with a 12 1/2-length triumph over Pledge Card and Polish Navy in the $230400 Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park. Gone West benefited from a drying track that favored front-runners and rail-runners, but was still very impressive and clearly the best horse in the field. Polish Navy outbroke him, but Gone West shot up on the inside to take the lead within the first quarter-mile and the duel was over. Gone West led at every call while posting steady fractions of 23 2/5, 47, 1:10 3/5 and 1:35 3/5. Gone West finished the one and one-eighth miles in the fine time of 1:48 2/ 5 under Eddie Maple and paid $4.20 as the favorite in a field of six. Pledge Card ran down Polish Navy in the final furlong and beat him by a half a length for second. Another eight lengths back was KC's Best Turn, and Jazzing Around and Simply Majestic brought up the rear. The victory was a bright spot in a gray Belmont meeting for Stephens. His Belmont Stakes streak was broken June 6 when Gone West finished sixth, 23 3/4 lengths behind Bet Twice, and the trainer had not won a race since sending out Nudge to an allowance victory that day. The Dwyer was only the third victory of the Belmont meeting for Stephens, the first coming when Gone West won the opening-day Withers Stakes on May 6. ''He looked like a race horse today,'' Stephens said of Gone West ...
