The ones who didn't make it

Another year, another Grand National. Two horses dead during the race. I torture myself each year watching the race, heart in my mouth, holding my breath every time there are fallers at a jump.

A moment's silence for Ornais fell at the fourth and Dooney's Gate who fell at Beecher's Brook; both fences were skipped on the second lap of the race as tragically both horses were fatally injured.
