Race horse jumps into crowd injuring seven people.mpg [01:10]
Spectators were hospitalised after a racehorse hurdled the wrong fence and plunged into the crowd at a steeplechase meeting in Australia on Thursday (May 5). Banna Strand, who had lost jockey Rowan Waymouth earlier in the race, leapt into a crowd of about 50 people after veering off course during the 5500-metre race in Warrnambool, Victoria. Seven people were taken to hospital, including a two-year-old girl and an elderly woman, after the horse jumped a three-metre high fence, according to the AAP news agency. Banna Strand was one of six horses who failed to complete the marathon race over 33 fences, Waymouth having fallen off his mount in a pile-up on the first circuit. Witnesses were shocked by what had happened. "There was people lying on the ground, it was complete chaos," said one racegoer. Racing Victoria is set to launch an investigation into the incident in conjunction with the Warrnambool Racing Club. Four people have been discharged from hospital.

Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...

A Sexy Horse: we pick Dan Breen at Sandown over champagne and seafood tapas [00:40]
A bottleof champagne; two large glasses of ornage to make buck's fizz; seafood tapas with breads for 3 people all for £54; lovely live music and overlooking the paddock! I could indulge having backed Posh Emily each way at 14/1 (3rd) and Russian Flag to win at 8/1 (won) but my former colleague at the Royal Geographical Society Kathryn hadn't yet had a bet. She was a first time racegoer and inspired by my succesas a tipster so far decided to have a good bet on Dan Breen. Somehow; we thought he was just a sexy horse whn he entered the Parade ring...
