Horse-racing will be banned in UK?

Post by LuckyBonkers » Thu Apr 07, 2016 6:13 pm

Around this time of year without fail, horse-racing simultaneously receives great attention and great criticism. The Grand National, of course, is its most extreme form.

The way in which the unique race captures global attention, reaching an audience of up to 600 million, grants unwarranted precedence to some misplaced views.

The hunger for drama along with the chance to make money from large odds created the Grand National we see today. As the public started becoming unhappy with the race, horse-racing responded. As a result, the Grand National is now safer than ever.

Equine fatalities are without doubt the saddest part of the sport, and anyone who fails to mourn the loss of a participant could never call themselves a racing fan.

But the fact of the matter is that alterations to the fences in 2013 have resulted in no fatalities during the race’s last three years. Timber frames have been replaced with plastic birch, making all the obstacles much more forgiving.

It' s sad that the conservative parties are becoming more and more support. I lived for four years in Leeds and met many such people. They prefer chociliby daily to the church and forbid everything!



The truth is that banning horse racing would be absurd! UK is known for its liberal approach to gambling!

I agree but recent studies show that the British are becoming more conservative. Probably it's all because of immigrants and the situation in Europe. I would not be surprised if the current gambling law will be worse for players in 2-3 years

I don't believe in it. There are many lovers of horse racing in the UK.
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Bradley Whitford
