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 The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch".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 "The big change here is that traditionally where they had a timber frame to them that timber frame has been replaced by a plastic, more forgiving, birch and on top of that birch there's a minimum of fourteen, maybe even sixteen inches of spruce and the spruce is what the horses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

1991 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:09:44]
Supposedly suffering from slow workouts, fast competition and even the wrong pedigree, Strike the Gold won the 117th Kentucky Derby today with a rousing end run through the homestretch that defeated Best Pal by nearly two lengths and buried the other favorites by much more. The 3-year-old colt, often called "a horse of destiny" by his trainer, Nick Zito, had won only two races before he entered the starting gate for the most prestigious race of all. But he won this one with a dramatic move to the outside as the 16 colts turned for home. And once clear of the herd, he zoomed through the stretch, overtook Sea Cadet, outraced Best Pal and won all the roses. At the finish, in a race billed as a free-for-all among four star colts, Strike the Gold had 1 3/4 lengths on Best Pal, the speed horse from California. Then it was 1 3/4 lengths to Mane Minister, who went off at 86-1 and paid $25.60 for $2 just for running third. Next came another outsider, Green Alligator, a 16-1 shot, and then came the champion: Fly So Free, winner of the Eclipse Award last year as the best juvenile colt in the country. And far up the track in 10th place came Hansel, the record-setting winner of the Jim Beam Stakes and the favorite with the betting public when the horses went to the post today. Sea Cadet, another California speedball, played his proper role by taking the lead and holding it until he was nailed in the stretch and faded to eighth. Zito, an emotional man who dreams that "the Pearly Gates ...
