AINTREE: The joyous atmosphere at the Grand National was marred when it emerged that a horse had been killed after a horrific fall at the first fence.

Up For Review, an eight-year-old horse trained by Willie Mullins, was put down after the race. He was the third horse to die during this year’s three-day meeting, but the first in the Grand National for seven years.

ITV, which broadcast the race live, later showed a replay from the second fence onwards to avoid showing the fatal fall.

The tragedy came after Crucial Role and Forest Des Aigles had to be put down after suffering injuries during Ladies’ Day on Friday.

This year’s death toll has reignited debate over the safety of horses competing in the world-famous event.

“It’s crucial that steps are urgently taken to reduce the risk of these tragedies,” an RSPCA spokesman said.


Classic picture shows how brutal the Grand National is today the Animal Liberationists took over farms... meat works and blocked a main road in Melbourne it won't be long before they attempt the same protest tactics at major race meetings.
