  1. Ah yes, the delightful Chart notes….

    Fell over a fallen foe

    Came back bleeding…..

    Got hurt

    Put in an ambulance

    Confirmed dead

    One would think that this was a scene in a wartime battlefield – wouldn’t one….?

    And yes, these racehorses go out to run whilst at the same time fighting for their lives with a good chance of suffering injury or death.

    The horror story continues with death after death after death.

    And the horseracing industry carries on regardless.
