      Was shocked to hear that two horses had to be put down after the Grand National Race today at Aintree.

      Synchronised and According to Pete both died during the Grand National Race, Synchronised died after an injury following a fall early in the race and According to Pete died following a fall during the steeplechase.

      This really is sad news, earlier on before the race started Synchronised was seen bolting and knocking the jocky off before running off and having to be chased so it really was a shocked to hear that he had passed after the race.

      To be perfectly honest I would rather they did away with such a grueling race.
