horseracingkills Yesterday, we posted that the Grand National was on this weekend in the UK. We wished our colleagues in the UK who are also working to Ban Jumps Racinggood luck and hoped that they didn't suffer any losses like we have in Australia this week.

Sadly, just a few minutes into Grand National Day, 6 year old gelding 'Seedling' fell violently at the second last hurdle of a novice jumps race and was killed.

This event barely ever finished safely, with most years a horse being killed – often numerous horses. It just goes to show; no matter what the country, no matter how the races are run and no matter what 'safety' regulations are imposed – jumps racing will always kill horses and must be banned.

  •   nikki_vaughan R.I.P Seedling. This makes me incredibly sad that this innocent horse has died ! I truly hope that colleagues in the UK can try to ban jumps racing like they have done here in some states in Australia, but I truley think that jumps racing will never be banned in the UK because the queen puts horses in the grand national and it's a tradition for her! I wish some people would think about the stress of the horses and not about the money. 1w
  •   _charlottemcdonald_ No horses died in the English grand national this year they told everyone that all the horses and riders that fell were fine after the race 1w
  •   izziejohnston Every thing about racing is sad 1w
  •   bobbiewhale @_charlottemcdonald_ this was the 1st race if the 3 or day grand national event not the the actually grand national race. Seedling was the only horse to sadly die. All the horses that raced on the actual grand national are ok except balthazar king fell and has possible broken ribs, but is reported to be recovering. 1w

  •   horseracingkills @bobbiewhale @_charlottemcdonald_ the caption says that Seedling died in a novice jumps race. Not in the actual Grand National. Regardless, a horse killed in jumps racing is a horse killed in jumps racing and every life taken further shows that it must be banned. 1w
  •   bobbiewhale @horseracingkills I know, thats why I said that Seedling died in a different race not the national. 1w
  •   boopio @xgracehowardx Not yet but we're working on it because we're animal lovers, which means we put their needs above our own fun. 7d

horseracingkills As you may have gathered from our previous post, two horses were killed in jumps trials on the same day this week. RIP Verification & Feel The Fame, two victims of a cruel unpopular sport that only exists in two states of Australia now. It's time we end it for good.
We're also thinking of our friends and colleagues in the UK as they protest the #GrandNational this weekend, we hope they suffer no losses like ours this week. #BanJumpsRacing #HorseRacingKills #GrandNationalDisgrace

horseracingkills When tragedy strikes in jumps racing (which sadly is far too often) – we have to act quickly. Thanks to those who came along to our last minute demonstration today in Bourke St Mall for the two horses who were killed in jumps trials on Wednesday at Cranbourne. We ensured that their deaths were not in vain.

If you were unable to attend today, you can still take action! Call Victorian Racing Minister Martin Pakula's office NOW on 03 8684 1111 and leave him a voicemail asking that he ban jumps racing. You can also send an email to decision makers here: http://www.horseracingkills.com/take-action/ban-jumps-racing/ #BanJumpsRacing #HorseRacingKills
