The Craziest Moments In Horse Racing History

Over the years of horse racing there has always been moments in seasons on both the flat and the jumps that take the eye whether it be amazing horses that romp to victory or horses that come back from an injury to win a big race but what we are highlighting here are moments in a season that you can't remember and not for being special.

In national hunt racing horses falling is a formality and it is a horrible side of the sport but it also is what keeps it entertaining as most horses are still in the race until the last fence.

The 1 minute 30 seconds video looks back on some of the most peculiar moments in horse racing showing some of the strangest falls in racing history, horses that just refuse to race that really anger the stall handlers and horses that truly do have a mind of there own, running off the track.

National Hunt racing takes to the stage at this time of year with the flat season packing up at the end October with the last recognised meeting of the season being at Doncaster.

The jumps takes over from then and so far this season there has only been one Grade 1 race take place. The race came this weekend at Punchestown in the Morgiana Hurdle where the Willie Mullins Sharjah went on to win.

However, the big races are coming thick and fast now with another Group 1 set for this weekend at Haydock with what is seen as the first big race of the season over fences with the Betfair Chase.

This race last year brought up an astonishing moment and one of the biggest winning distances of the season with Bristol De Mai going on to victory by 57 lengths.

This does not feature in the crazy video but there are very similar moments for you to to have a look at below.
