Hello,

I respect your opinion DS, but is it really "Impossible" to run in two races’ in two days??

OK, the races’ are top drawer and no way  would I suggest anything to harm a horse, but these animals are hardy beasts, well fed and kept.<br>In the past, horses have been asked to carry out enormous tasks in comparison to today’s cossetted racehorse fraternity, and they did  so quite successfully…farms, pulling, cavalry etc.

I know I am not comparing like with like, comparing work/military animals to racehorses, nor am I advocating returning to the bad old days’ of animal cruelty,  but I am trying to make the point the equine community are a very hardy bunch and can offer a hell of a lot more than we think.<br>

regards,

doyley
