Why are horses so stupid ?
I just watched the grand national and why do horses continue to run when the riders fall off? It's not like a new thing either they have been doing it since I was a kid

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
gary, Piggott was one of those who would somehow find another gear from his horse, 2 furlongs from home

Frankel was great to watch......Tom Queally needed only to loosen the reigns and he was over the hills and far far away!

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
.. i remember being at Newmarket when Steve CAUTHEN was over here, he was riding flat out against the course, like a time trial, stopwatch in his head.
Really something to see.
(the British style a bit more tactical, hold up, win by a head)

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Grass or dirt? Ascot or Kentucky? Its important...

31 lengths or.... whatever harbinger did...

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Harbinger would have beat Secretariat.
On that day anyway.

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Harbinger was for most part of the race another 7 or 8 lengths off the leader Olivier Peslier waited until the final 2 furlongs before giving a bit of reign

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Were any of these lengths slipped?

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?

So Harbinger is an all time great???
Nope.


He is to me, won me a fuck load! His performance in the KG is one of the best of all time. 11 lengths, track record and 5 group 1 winners in behind.

The UK is the home of racing The history and prestige is there for everyone to see.


Shame the Micks keep pulling our pants down in both forms :(

If Guinness is counted as a drug, then yes 😄

Drugs. 😁😁😄😄

Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Athletico, Arkle had his own weight system:

The racing authorities in Ireland took the unprecedented step in the Irish Grand National of devising two weight systems — one to be used when Arkle was running and one when he was not. Arkle won the 1964 race by only one length, but he carried two and half stones more than his rivals.

Athletico Easthamico 7:03 Thu Apr 22
Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
FC.

Before my time.
Ankle was probably the best ever.
But I have to believe back then the ratings system was a load of old cock.

Are they saying Arkle was about 2 stone better than Sprinter Sacre,???

Can't be having that.

The race that matters. Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Kauto 2

Denman 1

Athletico Easthamico 6:59 Thu Apr 22
Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Yeah, stop banging on about Secretaiat winning by 15 lengths.
Probably another bent, drugged up, poor jockey race.

In isolation how about Harbinger smashing up a class field in the King George by about 8 lengths with Workforce behind.
Then Workforce wins the Arc.

So Harbinger is an all time great???
Nope.

Indeed and Arkle won it 3 years running only Golden Miller won more 5

Athletico Easthamico 6:54 Thu Apr 22
Re: Why are horses so stupid ?
Denman winning the Henesssey of top weight twice has more merit than Kauto winning a King George.

The race that matters. Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Denman finished in front of Kauto Star 3 times.

Kauto Star finished in front of Denman just once.

You mean the fucking totally worn out Secretariat record?


OK, it's in the bin
