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 The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch".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 "The big change here is that traditionally where they had a timber frame to them that timber frame has been replaced by a plastic, more forgiving, birch and on top of that birch there's a minimum of fourteen, maybe even sixteen inches of spruce and the spruce is what the horses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 ...

The entire accident only took a few seconds -- from the car's flipping, to the explosion, to the driver running out of the car screaming and on fire -- but it was still one of the funniest things the fans had ever seen.

"Seabiscuit: An Unlikely Champion" (2013) [15:02]
GET THE BOOK HERE: amzn.to Description: Picture yourself in the 1930's and a Seabiscuit fan. Every week you would go to one of his races and see him bolt from the starting gate and 1 minute later see him charge past the wire in 1st place. This book does not cover the FULL in depth story, mostly the races in depth. All of the big races he raced in was covered from the break of the bell towards the first turn all the way to blazing past the wire. Seabiscuit was the most well known symbol of hope for Americans during the great depression, Americans thought that even though they were poor and starving maybe one day they will be great. Seabiscuit did. My goal was to have this book be a great demonstration of an unlikely champion.

A symbol of hope for America during the great depression and Seabiscuit knew it. With any competition to face, or as many horses you can list, day to day, the greatest horse to exist.
