ONCE again there has been carnage at the races at Aintree.

How much longer can we, a so-called animal-loving nation that raises its hands in horror at activites such as bull fighting, condone this cruelty?

Anyone who supports horse racing is saying it’s all right for such creatures to be killed each year – as long as people are getting rich from it.

Let’s call on the RSPCA to take a stand against the Grand National. Although other races are to blame as well, the meeting at Aintree kills more horses every year.
