I bet on a horse today and when i was actualy watching the race, i felt quite guilty, these beautiful horse are practicaly forced to run for god knows how long with about 30 other big horses, and when it gets to the jumps, there is always one that falls over and gets hurt, concidering that im an 11yr old girl who is against horse racing, i think that i have made my point very clear and i WONT be watching another horse race again even if £[protected] pounds was up for grabs, its cruel and horrible, they hit and scream at the horses jus so they get MONEY thats all they want MONEY MONEY MONEY ! ! !

    Doncaster 3.35pm the so called legends race was the biggest fix i have ever seen and i want immediate action.The Jockey on next stop from the furlong pole was easily going to win but the jockey looked across at McCOY and see he was going to pass him and just stopped riding.If we were told before the race this is a tribute to McCoy and we will let him win then we would just watch.They treat the public like kids well i see what was going on and i dont want to hear the jockey mistook the winning post as he looked over at McCoy to make sure he would go past and stopped riding.Absolutely disgraceful and i want action taken by adults with a clear mind not fiddling little nobodies.
    Thanks and i expect something done now!!!

    On sat at thirst 2 50 I backed a horse at 2/1, The five for the race was withdrawn meant the horse I backed then became 7/4 all through the day the prices stayed the same when leading up to the race the five that was mine became 15/8 at the off it ended up 7/4 five when I went to pick up my winning from bet red they said I had a rule 4 due to the withdraw of the five at that time I backed the horse, they are
    35 pence in the pound deduction I was sick I do not understand why the horse was 7/4 all day yet they are 35 pence in the pound for the rule 4 if the horse would have ended up 1/1 or shorter then I would have understand the reason for the 35 pence in the pound
    i got paid 5/4 although the horse was 7/4 all day long Unfair this law is a farce it should be looked at . Can i get some kind off feed back i lost £35 in a rule 4 I Do Not win that often but when i do i still Do not get back the amount i.should

    I watched the 1st race at Hamilton Park today, the fav was clearly in the lead and cantering, he has group 1 entries, the jockey ( Fanning ) clearly stopped riding 1 furlong from home and allowed the 2nd fav to wander past him. the stewards must have been sleeping to miss this one . I wish to complain in the strongest terms and wish this race looked at

    I have just watched the 2;40pm race at the Cheltenham Festival, which may I say was very exciting at the finish, sadly though I noticed, some un-professional conduct by one jockey, Mr Ruby Walsh, his mount for the race, Blazing tempo, was always out of line before the start, started last stayed last, and pulled without being put into the race, his jockey never had any enthusiasm to get Blazing Tempo into the race, now if that horse had been Big Buck's and we will see later for proof, Mr Walsh will have his horse involved, sadly it seems and I have seen this many times, if Mr Walsh is not on a favoured horse, he will not try that hard to get involved, maybe he feels he his to good a jockey to be riding a second string horse, if so maybe he needs a change of career, or a rest.

    I know in America, it is illegal for individuals under 18 (in some states 21) to bet on horse racing. I take it you are in the U.K.; is the law different there?

    The 1.15 at Newcastle. The favourite was coming to last and quite clearly shows no effort to keep pushing out to get placed. Seems a bit odd considering the horse that beat him to third wasnt even staying on so how he managed to get third let's you think the jockey hasn't pushed him out till the end. Which is one of the well known rules to jockeys
