Aintree Grand National | Are lower fences safer for horse racing?
Betfair trading explained via the Grand National | BBC Interview
There’s always a lot of discussion around the Grand National as to horse welfare. To tackle one of these issues they made amendments to lower the fences to help tackle fallers. The interesting thing about this is that the jockeys were actually disputing the new lower fences saying, if you lower the fences then the horses will just go at them more and they’ll be more fallers.
This made me think, let’s actually go out and see what the impact of all the different characteristics of jumps have and how that affects how many fallers there are in horse racing and whether it’s safe or not?
So in this video, I go into a deep dive into how different horse racing characteristics affect. the chances of a horse falling and either the jockey or horse getting injured.
