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 The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch".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.

Black Caviar, Hickstead & Frankel; Hallelujah [02:46]
I lie. this isn't NCIS sorry! :3 finished this instead. Three great names, from separate parts of the world, each horse a champion in their own. I just like the music ok. lyrics here are not important honestly. Just enjoy these three great equine legends and be glad that you lived to see them perform. Horses like this don't come around often, and it's almost all over. So just be glad that it happened because in half a century we will be trying to line horses up next to these. Before you ask, the song is the Safetysuit version and ughhh, LOVE. And may the gods of all things horsey use their almighty powers to have black caviar stride down the famous flemington racecourse one more time!
